I’ve just made the decision to go forward, after weeks of deliberating over whether I’m good enough academically or whether I’m even ready, to do a stellar job of proofreading and/or copy editing someone’s Master’s, DBA or PhD thesis. I’ve come to the conclusion that I am good enough and I am ready. Due to several derailments of the forward motion of my life over the years, it’s very conceivable that I might have been that someone (like you) looking for someone like me to proof and edit my thesis. Hey…you never know where this crazy, windy road of life may take us so I’m just reaching out at this point in my life to grab the brass ring as I begin this business that could very well bring me much happiness…in many ways, on many levels.

Thirty years of experience as a legal secretary, corporate paralegal and executive assistant have taught me to professionally proofread and edit legal documents of all kinds, complexities lengths and natures. I am at a crossroad and have decided it is time to change careers from editing and proofing legal documents in favor of editing and proofing manuscripts, short stories, articles, media posts and blogs. To round out my expertise, I earned a copyediting certificate at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. If you have a manuscript you'd like readied for independent publication OR submission to a named publishing house OR perhaps you have a short story (article) you'd like polished for submission to a magazine or writing contest, I hope you will contact me to perform a final run-through prior to submission.
