If you’re looking for a detail-oriented editor with an artist-educator’s heart, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m a freelance editor in Virginia. I trained when I spent four years working for a university writing center and also studied developmental editing with the Author-Editor Clinic. I do both developmental editing and copy editing. I work with fiction and general-audience nonfiction. I’ve got a special passion for middle grade and young adult, historical fiction, and crime fiction.
