I am recently retired from a long career in marketing, in which I generated proposals and edited all of the marketing collateral for the firms at which I was employed. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Connecticut. To capitalize on my passion for the English language, I have started a business as a professional proofreader and copy editor. No job is too large or too small. I have expertise in a variety of industries, including accounting, medicine, law, technology and media. Will edit any document from articles, eBooks and press releases to term papers, theses and website content. I was also highlighted as a success story case study on the Freelancer community page. Please do not contact me for anything other than proofreading or editing. I am not interested in being a virtual assistant or anything similar. Thanks for understanding.
