copyediting: “an editor who prepares copy for the typesetter.”
i graduated from gonzaga university in 2010 with a minor in english. as a passionate writer, i decided to pursue my editing certificate at the university of washington and am now a certified editor—i am most experienced with copyediting but can also provide developmental or substantive edits, proofreading services, and social media support.
i work for a financial services company in seattle, washington, and while i enjoy the finance industry, i am most passionate about the work i do in my free time as a blogger, copyeditor, and social media influencer.
in addition to posting social media content for myself and others, i enjoy editing the words of my fellow writers. i specialize in writing about fashion, finance, real estate, and early childhood education. whether you’re looking for copyediting or social media support, i welcome an opportunity to discuss how we can collaborate to make your content more professional and polished.
prior to completing my editing certificate, i, too, was unfamiliar with the term “copyeditor.” editing is a multi-step process, regardless of whether you are editing a corporate document, book, magazine article, or news piece. if you have a manuscript (in-process or complete), i welcome the opportunity to provide developmental edits, copyediting, or proofreading services. it is an honor to collaborate with fellow writers and creatives!
