Why Hire Me?

Given the specialty work I often do, my ability to understand the ways that words can either cause joy or harm is an important part of the work I do. Additionally, the historical significance of events has been a critical component of the structural and copyediting I offer. It allows me to suggest historical and current information that authors can include in their manuscript to strengthen their arguments — this is especially true for non-fiction writing. However, I frequently use my knowledge of Indigenous experiences in the other genres I edit, including fiction and memoir. Let’s talk more about why I’m the best editor for your project.
