I gained most of my editing experience while on staff at the University of Virginia, where I worked in two clinical departments (Internal Medicine and Plastic Surgery), two basic science departments (Microbiology and Physiology), and the Curry School of Education.
In 2010 I left the university to freelance as an editor and writing coach. Since then I’ve edited journal articles, book chapters, dissertations, and grant applications in a wide variety of disciplines: economics, finance, statistics, information systems, gerontology, psychology and psychoanalysis, anthropology, education, engineering, sociology, geography, history, and computer science, among others.
My clients include faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students at UCLA, Columbia University, Boston College, the Wharton School, Wayne State University, Texas A & M, Northwestern University, the University of Zurich, Singapore Management University, Stanford University, Iowa State University, the University of Southern California, New York University, the University of Virginia, Yonsei University, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, the National University of Singapore, Yale University, Cornell University, Fudan University, the University of Minnesota, Princeton University, the University of Maryland, the University of Pennsylvania, Virginia Commonwealth University, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and University College, London.
I graduated with High Distinction from the University of Virginia in 1985 with a B.A. in English and am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association. I’m also a writer, and have won three awards from the Virginia Press Association.
