I am a qualified proofreader with a passion for accuracy and for the English language. I'm one of those people who gets annoyed if I come across a misplaced apostrophe in a newspaper article.
I studied BA English at Southampton University, and graduated in 2006 with first class honours. In between my studies, I twice visited Africa to undertake voluntary work, firstly spending six months in northern Kenya typesetting materials for a literacy project, and secondly teaching English to women in South Sudan.
After graduating, I worked as a care worker for a few years before taking a proofreading course. Since then, I have worked with a variety of clients including students, authors and publishers (please see the individual pages for more details of my experience).
When I'm not proofreading or looking after my two children, I can generally be found with my head in a book. I'm a voracious reader and enjoy all sorts of genres, from sci-fi to autobiography to historical novels.
