Why the name Boiling Ink? I like to think of editing as alchemy for the writer's soul--boiling the words down to the ink to make something even better. My friends tell me that is not alchemy and that maybe I need a new name. But, I know how hard it can be to put words to paper and, as an editor, I work hard to maintain the integrity of your words with added clarity, cohesiveness, and grammatical care.

I started Boiling Ink because I wanted to make a living doing something I enjoy. Currently, I edit reports, white papers, outreach materials, and website content for a federal-tribal contracting company, as well as run Boiling Ink, my freelance editorial business.

I have worked as an editor and proofreader for 5 years. I'm very proficient with Microsoft Word's editing, styles, table, and referencing tools. I also use Adobe's commenting tools to mark up the beautiful .PDFs that come my way.

I have a B.A. in English with concentrations in creative writing and communications and a professional certificate in copyediting. Currently, I am completing a course on developmental editing with the Author-Editor Clinic. Through Boiling Ink, I have had the opportunity to work with many English as a Second Language design students to refine the text of their thesis projects while maintaining the integrity of their work.

I am familiar with a variety of style guides, from the standard Associated Press, American Psychological Association, Government Printing Office, or Chicago Manual of Style style guides to individual organization's style sheets.
