I live and edit in Omaha, Nebraska, where I am currently working on my Master of Arts in English degree at the University of Nebraska in Omaha. When I’m not editing, doing homework, or working at my other job in mortgage lending, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two cats, reading anything I can get my hands on, and listening to awesome music, such as the Arctic Monkeys.

Editing has been my dream ever since I was in elementary school and would mark up my Baby Sitter’s Club books to correct typos and misspellings. As a writer, I understand how difficult it can be to make my message clear and relatable for my readers. As a reader, I know how frustrating it is to find a great story or article incomprehensible due to a lack of editing. My goal is to help you make your work articulate and engaging, while maintaining your own tone and writing style.
