For the past four years, I have worked as a copy editor for the Indiana University School of Continuing Studies Independent Study Program collaborating with instructional designers, instructors, authors, graphic designers, and XML coders to create, organize, and present online and print course content. I have proofed and edited self-study courses at the high school and undergraduate levels in disciplines ranging from Philosophy to Spanish and Business to Gender Studies. My duties include editing and proofing before and after coding; directing queries to authors; searching for relevant online resources and Creative Commons graphics; as well as verifying facts, links, references to source materials, citations, and copyright compliance.
As a freelancer, I have a well-established relationship with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL). I currently wish to expand my freelance client base for two major reasons: (1) I desire to break into the world of book publishing and (2) I want to relocate to my hometown of San Antonio, Texas.
I pride myself on my attention to detail, my ability to work well with others, my problem-solving skills, and my capacity to work within varying parameters, such as voice and style. I have worked on up to eight projects at different levels of the production process and under such tight deadlines as twenty four hours, often exceeding expectations.
Let my eagle eyes do the work for you!
