ABOUT

New photoI 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, Northwestern University, the University of Zurich, New York University, the University of Virginia, Sun Yat-Sen University, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, the National University of Singapore, the University of Minnesota, the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis, Xiamen University, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, the University of Maryland, Wayne State University, Singapore Management University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Florida, Yonsei University, Virginia Commonwealth University, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Michigan State University, the University of Texas, the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, and Florida State University.

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.
