I am an attentive and organized graduate from Bethel College. I have a B.A. in English and plan to start on a Master's within the next five years. I had a year long internship with Ave Maria Press in which I worked as copy editor and editorial assistant, and during that time I learned how to check for consistencies within the text and the formatting, along with the checking of the copyright information. I spent long hours checking for grammatical and syntactical errors, catching spelling mistakes and incorrect word usages, looking through every line of every page for awkward formatting or spacing issues.
