I edit the entirety of UW Extended Campus’ curricula to ensure correctness, clarity, and consistency across course offerings while maintaining author voice, querying the authors when necessary. In addition, I edit internal documentation and consumer-facing material, including conference proposals, grant applications, and websites. I also manage and run an asynchronous online writing lab that services our students, offering them feedback on their assignments to improve their writing and formatting skills.

• Initiated and led an organization-wide transition from APA 6th edition to APA 7th edition to v
ensure consistency across our curricula, creating a number of APA resources to support
both students and faculty

courses that were designed to help UW System faculty transition and adapt their in-person
courses to the online environment

• When we launched our Associate of Arts and Sciences degree program, it would have
been impossible for me to review each course prior to the program’s launch, so I created
an editing plan that allowed me to edit a few weeks ahead of each course’s schedule,
ensuring that students only saw edited content
