My experience in proofreading is somewhat atypical. I took the scenic route to become a freelance proofreader. Here are just a few of my stops along the way:

I have been an executive assistant for many years, and proofreading and copyediting have formed an integral part of my roles within the various organisations I have worked for.

I completed a BA in Health Sciences and Social Services—specialising in counselling psychology.

I completed a graduate diploma in marketing, a diploma in proofreading, and a creative writing course. I have also completed a TEFL course, hence qualify to teach English online to foreign students wishing to learn the language.

I’m a grammar nerd and I love everything about the English language. Proofreading is as much a hobby for me as it is a vocation. 

I offer professional and meticulous proofreading and copyediting services for various content, including but not limited to: 

  • Websites
  • Social media
  • Blogs
  • Marketing material
  • Books
  • Business documents
  • Manuscripts
  • Annual reviews
  • Proposals
  • Tenders
  • Assignments
  • Essays
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • LinkedIn Profiles

I also provide virtual assistance services where required as well as translation services between English and Afrikaans.
