I divide most of my work time between editing ESL academic and scholarly articles and documents, a variety of publications, books, and articles for my wonderful clients at different universities, and publications for children, middle grades, and young adults for both publishers and indie authors.

This book is now in publication and will soon be available in select book stores and online through Chocolate River Publishing.
Copy Edit, Ph. D. Dissertation in Public Health
Copy edit and line edit on a dissertation in the field of public health. APA style.
Copy Edit, Deer Island Mystery by Don Kelly, published by Chocolate River Publishing
I performed a full copy edit on Deer Island Mystery, a middle-grades mystery novel. I pointed out potential issues and inconsistencies in the story, and made some basic stylistic edits and suggestions. This book is now in publication and can be found in select book stores and online.
YA Short Story/Novella
I worked with the author to develop the story and strengthen the writing, as well as to resolve inconsistencies in the timeline. I also performed intensive stylistic and copy edits through various iterations of the work.
Web Content Edit/Design Consultation, The Captain’s House and Villa, Bequia
Complete edit for grammar, typos, general flow and smoothness of the text for the website of the Captain’s House and Villa, which provides tourism rental properties located in Bequia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Calling on my graphic design skills (gained through my diploma in digital media design), I also gave feedback on and performed minor changes to the design and layout of the site.
Copy Edit, Funds Request/Grant Proposal, Executive Summary, and Outcomes Report, Birchmount Community Playgreen
I performed a copy edit, line edit, proofread, and minor structural edit of a Funds Request for the steering committee of a large-scale local playground revitalization project.
I copy edited, line edited, and proofread the Executive Summary for the Birchmount Community Playgreen steering committee. The Executive Summary document is the “face” of the project, giving the reader a full vision of the project, including its scope, progress, and mission.
I copy edited and proofread the Outcomes report for the Birchmount Community Playgreen steering committee. The Outcomes report details the expected outcomes for the project and the metrics upon which the outcomes will be evaluated.
The Birchmount Community Playgreen project is a large-scale local project that entails an upgrade and conversion of an urban school playground into a naturalized, accessible, and environmentally conscious space for student and community use.
