About Me

I am an experienced editor and writer with a master's degree, based in Sacramento, California. While I specialize in editing book manuscripts for individuals or publishers (I've worked on somewhere over a hundred book projects to date), I also help clients with curriculum development, note taking, business materials, articles, short stories, websites, regulatory documents, and academic projects. I enjoy working with both local and remote clients, as I largely work electronically, often in Microsoft Word.

I have been running my own business since 2006. In the past, I was lifestyle department editor for intentionally urban magazine, and  senior editor for Ink&Paper Group, a Portland-based publishing company.  In addition to working on my own, I also subcontract for Indigo Editing & Publications and work as a contractor for Sacramento State University's College of Continuing Education and Westervelt Ecological Services.

In terms of writing, I write web copy, articles for local and national publications, and marketing materials.

I have a bachelor's degree in English/French from UCLA, and a master's in writing/book publishing from PSU. I am also available for speaking at workshops and writer's conferences.
