After seven years of teaching high school English, in 2014 I decided to pursue my true passions of writing and editing full-time. In 2017 I completed the Certificate of Editing program at the University of Washington and joined the Northwest Independent Editors Guild. I also hold a membership in the AWP and am an active participant in local writing programs in the Seattle area.

Over the past six years I’ve worked with authors around the globe editing and ghostwriting for a wide range of publications. In more recent times, I’ve narrowed my scope to small businesses and individuals who are in search of an editor for their projects. Please see my Services page for detailed descriptions of what I can do for you.

I have my favorite things to work on and some specific knowledge of the following genres: science fiction, music writing, literary fiction, science writing, and education.

I hold a B.A. with honors in English from the University of Iowa, and a M.A. in Education from Stanford University. You can find my more detailed résumé on LinkedIn.
