A successful book is not made of what is in it,

but of what is left out of it.


Mark Twain

About Me

I have been passionately in love with the written word ever since teaching myself to read at the age of four. When I eventually discovered proofreading and editing, I knew I had found my dream career.


I believe an author’s most important asset is their original writing voice, and my goal is to preserve and amplify that voice by removing obstacles such as grammar and punctuation problems, lack of clarity, and weak structure. I am committed to helping my clients publish their work with the highest possible quality.

I live in gorgeous Southern Oregon with my family. When I'm not at my desk, I can often be found on a hiking trail or the local ballroom dance floor.
