I have enjoyed 24 years of proofreading and medical transcriptionist experience. What a joy to read a document which is spelled correctly and well written. Accuracy and quick turnaround times are my mantra, along with top-notch quality work. Transcription and proofreading are my first loves. My focus is to work from home by providing proofreading, transcribing, and any administration assistance to employers. Currently there seems to be an overabundance of spelling, punctuation, and grammar "booboos" occurring in our local paper, in advertisements and flyers, in instruction manuals, and on social media sites on the internet, and there is a real need to ensure that the written word is clearly understood. Proofreading has never been more necessary than now. Thank you very much for your time.
