While in elementary school, I discovered the power of the book with the help of leading ladies like Nancy Drew and Hermione Granger. In high school, I learned about the true power of the English language and how a few well-written words can sway history. In college, I realized my enthusiasm for the minutiae of English and learned about the power of coffee.

A love of words could push a person toward any conceivable career, but when that passion is coupled with a creative, organized, and detail-driven individual, it makes an editor out of them. In my experience, the coffee helps too.

I graduated in 2012 from the University of North Texas in Denton, TX. I received a B.A. in English, with a concentration in technical communication, and a minor in cultural anthropology. I’ve since earned an M.S. in Publishing from the University of Houston-Victoria, a degree plan that was both extensive and rewarding. I’ve been editing professionally since 2012, and have learned a good many things along the way—both about the art of editing and about the world of publishing.
