It's not indicated in the listing, but I also write back-of-the-book indexes.
Although I have an accounting degree, the written word is my first love. I was hooked from the time I completed a Writer’s Digest course as a teen, but other things got in the way. I have a 15-year background in business, primarily banking and finance, but also have experience in real estate and property management. Over the years, colleagues fittingly called me a “word nerd.” I've taken several intensive editing classes, earned UCSD's Specialized Certificate in Copyediting, and have completed UC Berkeley's course Indexing: Theory and Application.
Organization, efficiency, attention to detail, and dependability are crucial skills for a copy editor/indexer and are among my strengths. I've worked on everything from daily local news, educational workbooks, and résumés, to self-improvement books, B2B, and hundreds of presentations for AWS (Amazon Web Services) re:Invent conferences. Using the style guide of your choice, I will ensure your piece shines.
I do not edit erotica, horror, political, religious, or supernatural material.
My references attest to my determination to ensure complete satisfaction; I'm not happy unless they are happy. I take pride in helping my clients to produce the most streamlined and professional work possible. I'm not happy unless you are happy.
Born and bred a California girl currently residing with my family not too far from the Mexican border, I’m familiar with common US customs as well as the Latino culture.
