About

I am an experienced technical editor, and a trained paralegal. I have worked with legal, technical, and genealogy related materials for over twelve years. I have been a professional genealogist for about two years and have worked with genealogists and attorneys to do genealogical and probate searches. I was also an online bookseller for about five years. With these skills and experiences, I can offer you focused editing, proofreading, and indexing services in a variety of materials.

A general list of what I focus on is:

  • Academic papers
  • Business & Technical documents
  • Genealogical publications
  • Manuscript preparation
  • Professional materials

Materials can be composed to a number of styles, including the MLA, Chicago, AP, or other specific standardized formats. Legal documents may need special processing fees in addition to regular charges. If material is for commercial publication, extra charges may be applicable. I also edit and proofread websites.

Contact me to start a discussion about the possibilities of editing, proofreading, or indexing your project. Likewise, if you would like more information about my editing, proofreading, and indexing services, I’d love to hear from you.
