I hold a BA in English and was an English teacher. I am new to the freelancing world though I have extensive editing experience from both my days in college and teaching. I can copy edit as well as edit for content, language, etc. I am proficient in MLA.

I've held a couple of positions in the public sector where I was responsible for compiling and submitting annual reports for both environmental and operational purposes. I contributed frequently to newsletters and often edited those newsletters.
