20% discount with NoTypeO - use Coupon Code NoTypeO upon checkout. I have a BA in English Writing from the University of Pittsburgh, with a focus on journalism. In addition to freelancing for a local newspaper for several years, I also have more than 10 years of experience as a Technical Editor at the U.S. Department of Energy. In that role, I often review/format/edit highly scientific papers that make no sense to me. However, I have the ability to make them read "good." Knowledge of the topic isn't a requirement; in fact, sometimes it is a hinderance. Going into a document without prior understanding of the subject requires enhanced focus, leading to a better product at conclusion.

15% discount with WrittenWord - use Coupon Code WrittenWord upon checkout. For reference, my current operating time zone is KST (EST+13 hours). I am passionate about the ways that writing shapes our ability to communicate, and my hope is to help you do so with great success. I have written, edited, and developed academic materials for various disciplines including movement disorders, gastroenterology, oncology, behavioral psychology, nutritional epidemiology, clinical nutrition, and public health. In my post-graduate work I assisted in writing and editing grants and papers, as well as proofreading and copyediting others for submission to various academic journals. Additionally, I have substantively edited numerous personal documents, cover letters, resumes, essays, articles, and blog posts with specific regard to ESL (English as a Second Language) material. It is always my priority to maintain the authenticity of the writer’s voice while addressing grammar mistakes and stylistic inconsistencies and strengthening the structure, clarity, and flow of the writing to communicate the intended message. I will provide detailed commentary and suggestions for enhancing your writing, and offer sample editing for your observation.
