I am a proofreader and editor associated with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) with a qualification in proofreading. I currently work as a proofreader for the publishing house Boldwood Books, and a copyeditor for Wordcatcher Publishing.
With a Bachelor of Science in Geography from Lancaster University and the University of Calgary, I am a freelance academic proofreader for Proofessor UK Ltd. I have completed various other freelance proofreading and editing projects such as for authors, websites, surveys, presentations and personal statements.
I am an avid reader of fiction, particularly in the genres of fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary and thriller. When I can find the time, I beta-read novels for aspiring authors. My love of reading, my qualification in proofreading and my experience in publishing have given me the skills needed to proofread and edit to an excellent standard.
With a level C1 in French by DELF standards, I also translate French documents into English and am currently a freelance translator for Satelit Odysur, an international transport company based in France.
