I have eleven years of experience working as an editor and communications consultant. From fiction manuscripts and interview transcriptions to press releases and ELL programs, I’ve worked on a little bit of everything, but I specialize in editing creative writing.
I’m an Arizona State University Sun Devil (Spanish and History) who has successfully passed copyediting classes through UC San Diego Extension. I am a member of the Society for Editing (formerly the American Copy Editors Society) and the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA). I was one of the jurors for the Speculative Literature Foundation‘s 2016 Working-Class Writers Grant, and I was one of the featured speakers at the 2017 Tallahassee Writers Conference and Book Festival.
Bonus trivia: I am married to my best friend, and we have four amazing kids. I love them all dearly. Our collective fandoms include Studio Ghibli, Star Wars, and Doctor Who. My book collection borders on literary hoarding, particularly my collection of dictionaries. I have lived in a few different countries and in various states across the USA. I sincerely hope to one day see world peace become a reality.
