I am a qualified proofreader and Entry-Level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).
I initially qualified and worked as an optometrist before moving into academia as a researcher and lecturer in medical and health related areas.
As I have written my own PhD thesis and published a number of papers and reports, I understand the care and attention you put into your work and I aim to do the same when proofreading it.
I can work on PDF documents or using track changes in Word documents but am also happy to work on hard copies. I am proficient in the use of British Standard proofreading symbols. Before undertaking any work, I will make sure I am marking up in a way that works for you.
I can proofread any project:
• Theses and dissertations
• Academic papers
• Business documents
Specialist areas include:
• Health and health service related areas
• Medical sociology
• Sports science
I have completed the CIEP Proofreading Unit 1 and 2 (passed with merit). I have also completed the self-assessed course ‘Proofreading Theses and Dissertations’.
