Author bio
I am a copy editor and proofreader who specializes in nonfiction editing. I primarily provide copyediting and proofreading services. Learn more about me by visiting my website or reading below.

Alinea Editorial’s mission

I provide editing and proofreading services that stay true to your voice while ensuring your writing builds trust with your readers. Together, we will produce an edited manuscript that is clear, consistent, and inclusive, so that it provides a smooth and enjoyable reading experience for your audience.

Background and experience

My educational background is in social science and education. I have a bachelor’s in psychology and criminology and criminal justice with a minor in Spanish language and cultures from the University of Maryland. I also earned master’s and educational specialist degrees in school psychology from the College of William & Mary. For eight years, I worked in public schools as a school psychologist.

My relevant experience includes editing nonfiction books, curricular materials, academic manuscripts, news articles, research briefs, policy manuals, newsletters, promotional materials, and website copy. To build on my editing and writing experience, I obtained a certificate in editing from the University of Washington.

Editing and related skills

I primarily work with Chicago, APA, and MLA styles, and I complete editing in Word, Google Docs, and Adobe Acrobat Reader. I am also proficient in using editing and proofreading marks on hard copy. I am fluent in Dutch and English and have limited working proficiency in Spanish and German.

Clients and quotes

My clients include independent authors, university presses, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, education professionals, and academic writers. I provide project-specific quotes that account for factors such as word count, complexity, timeline, and type and level of editing. If you are interested in a quote for your project, please fill out the contact form on my website. I also offer free 30-minute consultation sessions for new clients. I look forward to working with you!
