As a detail-oriented editor with formal training in editing from the University of Chicago Graham School, I am seeking opportunities to edit and proofread all kinds of content, including web content, marketing copy, book manuscripts, academic journals, articles, and grant proposals. While I have experience in writing, I find that I am most productive in an editing role, and I naturally enjoy this work. In addition to my training in the Chicago Manual of Style, I am familiar with AP style and can adapt to any particular house style guidelines.
My editing experience includes academic, technical, and online marketing copy. I have edited grant narratives to be presented to the U.S. Department of Education in STEM areas (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), in addition to collaborating in research on nonprofit grants for the U.S. Department of Justice.
As a copy editor for several online-focused content companies, I have edited articles and materials for consistency of style and adherence to SEO strategies. These experiences have involved close collaboration with freelance writers, providing feedback and coaching writers on areas of improvement.
In addition to editing monolingual documents, I have edited and proofread English-Spanish translations. For more than seven years, I have worked as a Spanish interpreter and translation proofreader. I have also received training in Trados 2011 and have used this software for translation and editing.
