About Me

Working with you to publish the best.

I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) for 18 years then started freelance editing. I've lived abroad in Germany and Japan, have a Master's in ESL, and a BA in International Studies and German. When I'm not teaching or editing, I'm watching stand-up comedy, listening to a podcast, or posting pictures of my food on Instagram.
