I have over thirty years of experience as an editor (books, book chapters, scientific journal articles, theses, dissertations, grants, popular writing) and writer (chapters, scientific journal articles, grants, nonfiction and fiction). Nonfiction prize winner in Lit. mag. contests, finalist in Lit. mag. fiction contest. My goal is to help writers produce a manuscript that expresses their message best in a voice appropriate to their intended audience. I ensure that their material exhibits correct grammar and syntax and adheres to the style required: Concise and descriptive for academic articles, chapters, or books and dramatic for popular writing.

I have edited more than 400 documents, of which 95% have been academic manuscripts in the life sciences, earth sciences, and chemistry. Most of my clients are ESL scientists from Asia, South America, the Middle East, and Europe. I thoroughly enjoy helping scientists improve their writing, finish their theses, and publish in scientific journals. I find learning about new scientific research exhilarating and consider myself fortunate to be able to spend my days clarifying the written scientific word. In addition to my academic work, I have also edited a non-fiction book, admissions essays, and personal documents.

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.
