About Me

As a mathematician, accuracy has been my focus for as long as I can remember. This, alongside professional experience in audit and accountancy, the Civil Service, and secondary education, has allowed me to develop a unique skill set that includes analysis, accuracy and communication.

With a diploma in Proofreading and Editing from the College of Media (Distinction) and over 15 years experience in the Public Sector, I can apply my skill set effectively and efficiently to your proofreading and copy editing needs. I’ve worked with schools and large academy trusts, accountants, hospitals, charities, and both local and central governmental departments. I am also an Entry Level Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.


The difference between proofreading and copy editing can be a little confusing. I offer both options; hopefully this information is useful for you to see which you need.


When proofreading your work I will check and correct any spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.

Copy editing

Copy editing goes one step further. I will proofread your text then make suggestions about the style and format of your document. I’ll think about who your target audience is and how to achieve the most clear, consistent and appropriate copy.


In order to provide an exact quote, I will need to see a sample of the copy. Please get in touch using the details below and I would be more than happy to help.
