Favorite referencing style

APA is my favorite referencing style. It's got a set of very clear rules to follow, so it's easy to check and get it right!

Why I became an editor

I studied science at university, and afterward, I ventured into the fitness industry. My tendency to want to know how and why things work extends to language and communication, and I value semantics and the use of grammar to improve the clarity of whatever is being communicated. When my partner asked me to look over one of her work pieces, I realized I enjoyed having an outlet to be nitpicky in a helpful way, and I decided to work as an editor.

Background and experience

I'm currently fairly new as a professional proofreader, but I’ve always been known to double and triple check over documents, emails, and social media posts at my workplace for many of my colleagues. I am often tasked with writing templates and short informative pieces to be used by the business.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love having the ability to approach a piece of work and edit it to read more coherently. Proofreading and editing give me an avenue to be critical and nitpicky in a helpful way. When someone has specifically requested advice, I feel like my contributions are valued. I also enjoy learning about a variety of topics, so the ability to work on texts from different sources exposes me to different fields of knowledge that I can later look into.

Favorite book:

My favorite books are the entire series of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, you'll find me in a gym training, eating (which means I'll need to do some more training), or playing on the PS5.

Editing tips:

I first read over it to see what I'm working with. I try to break it up into spelling, grammar, flow, and referencing, and I always aim to preserve the author's intended message.
