Words matter. As a writer, you know this. You have worked hard on your project: you’ve researched, outlined, written, deleted, rewritten, lost sleep, and rewritten. Whether it’s a dissertation headed to committee, a manuscript or article on the way to publication, or a project that needs another set of eyes—you need me.


Editing matters. It creates clarity and simplicity and lets the essential shine. With a bachelor’s degree in English, a master’s degree in theology, and ten years of editing experience, I am well equipped to dive into your project and provide meaningful and helpful edits.
