I am an independent copy editor and document specialist with more than 35 years' experience in document layout, copy editing, and proofreading of written documents, which include agricultural publications, environmental reports, company contracts, educational training manuals, journal articles, and doctoral dissertations. It's my job to ensure your documents are word-perfect and beautifully formatted. I am also an efficient and flexible virtual assistant, and can tailor my service offering to deliver exactly what you need to streamline your own business.
After 20 years' working with an environmental specialist, while raising my three beautiful girls in the western suburbs of Johannesburg, I made the scary yet exhilarating decision to broaden my horizons and work independently for a more diverse client base. Meeting new and interesting people with expertise in a wide range of fields not only energises me but ensures that I learn something new everyday. My passion for reading, excellent command of the English language, and an exceptional eye for detail and accuracy means I absolutely love what I do!
Being mindful of the technicalities of spelling, grammar, and punctuation is really about making your writing easy to read. When you publish content that is linguistically correct, you show that you value great work, and you position yourself as a thought leader in your industry. On the other hand, publishing articles full of errors harms your company's credibility and makes you look careless.
