My Qualifications

In 2016, I received my B.A. in English with a focus on literary studies. In the course of that degree, I took classes on grammar, language, creative writing, and more. This prepared me for editorial work of all kinds. My education is supplemented by past freelance work as well as other job and volunteer positions where I performed writing and editing duties.

I first worked as a head copy editor for a university newspaper. I then began freelancing as both a writer and an editor. As a freelancer, I have edited a large variety of written pieces, with topics ranging from fashion to business to technology. I’ve been a regular editor for five blogs, one of which had an average viewership of 1,200 people per post. My most significant client right now is Scribbr, a Dutch academic editing service through which I edit student papers written in English by people from around the world. I have experience with MLA, APA, and Chicago style.

In addition to editorial work, I’ve served as a support for English learners. I spent a semester as a teaching assistant for a university professor critiquing, conferencing about, and grading essays. I was also a founding member of the nonprofit Chapter One Events, which runs two annual conferences for young writers in Chicago. I have a wealth of knowledge about fiction writing, editing, and publishing, and I read over 250 books a year.
