Originally from the North West of England (yes, I apparently still have an accent!) I have been living in South Australia for 20+ years.
I adore the English language in all its forms, and am keen to put my passion to good use to help others. I am known amongst friends as a pedant – the one who always rolls their eyes at feral apostrophes or typos on menus; I can't help but comment on lack of clarity in any written communications, and I am always the one who colleagues turn to when they want their grammar and punctuation checked.
I worked at a University for over 12 years where I learned resilience, creativity and an ability to juggle competing priorities and meet tight deadlines. During my time there, I also had the opportunity to proofread numerous reports and documents, gaining my reputation for a keen eye with an attention to detail that is second to none.
In addition to hands-on experience, which includes proofreading FITREC's 'Raising the Bar' eMagazine, and Gordon Rugby Club's 2021 Annual Report, I am also certified in editing and academic proofreading.
I love reading and appreciate that even the best writers can make the occasional mistake. So whatever your project is, let me be your fresh pair of eyes to ensure your finished product is as good as it can be!
