I offer a range of editorial services, including:

  • developmental content editing - helping you clarify your conceptual argument, reorder structure, or refine your argument

  • copyediting - clarity of sentence structure, syntax, flow

  • proofreading - catching remaining typos and grammatical errors before publication 

  • manuscript review - feedback without edits on a book, book proposal, dissertation chapter, or journal article

I draw on nine years of experience teaching, writing, and editing. I received my PhD in Geography from the University of Washington and I have published numerous articles, book chapters, and white papers. I have also worked as a peer reviewer providing editorial feedback for a range of academic journals. For proofreading or copyediting, I work with writers across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. For developmental editing or manuscript review, I specialize in the fields of geography, women's, gender, and sexuality studies, critical race and ethnic studies, urban studies, disability studies, animal studies, American studies, and critical prison studies.
