Friendly, approachable and supportive, I go the extra mile to ensure clients are happy with their proofreading or copy-editing. I genuinely want my clients to succeed – in their studies, career, or with their business.
Following a thirty year business career, I developed my love of languages and passion for words by training to become a copy-editor and proofreader. I specialise in working with students, independent academics, and businesses, worldwide, for whom English is a second language, helping them to polish and perfect their written English.
I have a degree in Law, professional post-graduate qualifications in insurance and have been trained to exacting industry standards with the Publishing Training Company. I’m also an intermediate member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
Any type of document – from a blog post to a book; I am happy to proofread and copy-edit any subject. My speciality is Law and business. As a native English speaker, I will ensure that your work flows naturally and reads like native English. I learnt French as an adult, so I fully understand the difficulties of written communication in a second language.
Checking over 1.5 million words a year, I proofread and copy-edit all types of business and academic documents, including academic essays, dissertations and theses, business reports, letters, newsletters, blog posts, websites, educational materials, CVs, personal statements and non-fiction books. I have considerable experience of proofreading and editing academic work, including referencing to all the usual standards: APA, Harvard, Chicago, Oxford and OSCOLA. I am flexible and can accommodate any specific requirements you may have, such as compiling or formatting a bibliography or reducing word count – please contact me to discuss.
In addition to my skills of academic and business copy-editing and proofreading my personal passions are writing, animal welfare, and vegetarian and vegan food: cooking, recipe development, nutrition and lifestyle. I have a Diploma in Vegetarian Cookery from The Vegetarian Society, UK. I can put these skills to work, helping with recipe development, writing, and editing. As a published author I offer a copywriting service, covering carefully researched blog posts and articles in the fields of law, humanities, social sciences, health, nutrition, and any of my personal interests. Talk to me about ghost-writing your next non-fiction book!
Please don’t be put off by my location in France. I can assure you that, wherever I am, you will receive a high-quality job with meticulous attention to detail. I pride myself on doing a thorough and professional job. I am used to working under pressure and have never missed a deadline.
Please take a look at the feedback I have received and contact me to find out how I can help you. I look forward to working with you on your next writing project!
