For more than twenty years I've provided editing, proofreading, project management, and book consulting services to businesses, publishers, individuals, and self-publishing authors. All of my projects — books, marketing communications, journal/magazine articles, websites, resumes, proposals, and more — are approached with dedication and the highest professional standards.
Areas of specialization: business and book editing (fiction and nonfiction), manuscript evaluations, book development, proofreading, resume writing, and publishing/writing consulting.
Content expertise: health/fitness, nutrition, environment, business, natural/organic products, history, popular culture, social sciences, education, cooking, music, and spiritual traditions.

In 2010, I started Boulder Editors, an association of professional women editors along Colorado's Front Range.
