About ME



I’m an editor with a passion for helping text reach its potential so that others can understand and be helped by the messages conveyed.

Born in Washington state, I moved to Helena, Montana, with my husband and daughter in 2019. Of course, Montana was a great place to spend the COVID years, and everyone else realized it was a great place too! So, our quaint little city is growing. We love the big sky, the convenience of a ski area that’s 25 minutes away, the kid-friendly vibes (for our 11-year-old), the kind people, and the opportunities to relax and be ourselves.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, meditating, going for walks, skiing, cooking healthy food, learning about health, watching documentaries and reality shows (baking shows in particular!), and hanging out with my family.



The Chicago Manual of Style
APA Style

I am  familiar with major style guides, including The Associated Press Stylebook, The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA) manual.

My Education and Experience

I have more than ten years of experience as an editor and proofreader, as well as extensive experience as a writer. Much of my editing has been focused on the health sciences, including university communications and publications at a health clinic.

My education includes a BA in journalism and a certificate in technical writing and editing from the University of Washington. I have continued to pursue education to stay up to date on grammar standards, including a recent proofreading class through the University of Washington.

I truly enjoy helping written works achieve their potential. If you need help ensuring your writing is clear, inviting, and publishing-ready, feel free to reach out. I’ll be glad to help you get it polished and ready to go.
