I have a B.A. in English and taught English at secondary school for four years in Auckland, New Zealand, followed by two years teaching English as a second language. My relevant work experience includes copy editing for Elsevier Science Publishers, the International Journal of Wellbeing, the New Zealand Blind Foundation, and the Aegis Trust. I have been transcribing for more than 18 years, most recently with DTI Global. I have edited e-newsletters for two community organizations. I am the secretary of an Auckland heritage group, for which I write numerous submissions, mostly to the local council. My training in technical writing focused on the editing of manuals, considering how to present information with clarity and succinctness.

    “Audrey V did an outstanding job! She did much more than editing and proofreading - she checked my quotes, made suggestions, and even found content issues and suggested fixes. She also corrected inconsistent terminology, ensured accurate pagination given multiple pictures, and did many other fixes that showed that she truly cared. It is such a pleasure to work with a true professional who takes pride in her work! I highly recommend Audrey V to anyone who is looking for a high-quality outcome!”
