About Me

I am a native British, qualified (and enthusiastic!) freelance proofreader and copyeditor.

Passionate about words and the English language, detail oriented and a self-confessed perfectionist, I decided it was time – after a successful ten-year career in the corporate world – to channel these passions and skills, re-train, and eventually design my own perfect job: as a freelancer offering services in proofreading, copyediting and copywriting.

The importance of well-written, professional and error-free texts in business is undeniable, and my prior experience in corporate roles has equipped me with a wealth of skills and expertise that enables me to best serve my clients’ needs.

I understand the different styles and grades of language needed for different situations and audiences, and have a first-hand knowledge and understanding of the business world – particularly from a commercial perspective – which gives me an important insight when working with texts of any purpose, style or subject within a business context, whatever the industry.

My subsequent training has then honed my editorial and grammatical skills to ensure I can provide my clients with the high level of service they expect.

My background working in the travel industry means I have a particular expertise and interest in this industry. However, my keen love of reading and writing combined with my general interest in the world around me, means I am comfortable working with all manner of subjects and industries.

I work with clients and businesses that are both native and non-native English speakers, ensuring all manner of their English copy – whether web copy, blogs and articles, marketing collateral, corporate material or even company communications – is perfectly written and error-free, ensuring that they are presenting the best possible image to both their existing, and prospective, clients.
