About meI have enjoyed working as a medical writer and editor for the past 5 years. During this time I have come to meet very interesting people from many countries and I have had the privilege of working with very respected people from different scientific fields. I am a member of the American Medical Writer's Association and I have been taking several of their workshops in order to improve my writing and editing skills. Throughout the years, I have developed my own editing techniques, which have helped me deliver documents with the highest quality and I continue to develop and adjust these techniques based on my experiences.

About meMy unquenchable yearning for debate, effective communication, and flavorful language was cultivated during my youth and persists in an undiminished capacity to date. I had always found that the pen and key stroke captured my critical thoughts more accurately than my tongue, and I believe that applies universally. When I started off as an amateur editor, my passion resonated with the people I worked with and they would become quite involved; they would enthusiastically request my aid and pick my brain, and this only fueled my interest. My contributions have sometimes been of such significance, that I had been given author credits on occasions when I did not request the honor, and I am incapable of suggesting a more satisfying expression of gratitude. I continue to edit and consult with research efforts both within my areas of expertise (electrochemistry and analytical chemistry) and beyond, for the process of reviewing literature supplies a virtually infinite amount of learning opportunities. I am in the process of finishing my doctoral degree and will likely be supervising a research group abroad upon graduation.

About meI began editing in college, when I helped first-year students improve their essays for the mandatory general studies curriculum. Since then I have edited journal articles, research monographs, museum catalogs, and grant proposals. I enjoy editing for the opportunities it provides me to learn and explore other disciplines, widening my perspective as a liberal arts scholar. Previous clients include the Royal Ontario Museum and the European Journal of Archaeology. In my own research I have collaborated closely with, and provided editing assistance to, a number of researchers and institutions in Eastern European countries such as Poland, Romania, and Ukraine. I continue to actively conduct research in the social sciences, particularly in the fields of anthropology and geography. I also provide pro bono writing and editing assistance to local non-profit organizations in the greater New Orleans area. When editing, I read the original and revised material out loud. While this practice has necessitated my finding a private office, it also allows me to consider non-grammatical aspects of the writing, such as flow and cadence, when making revisions. In this manner I strive to deliver revisions which are not only grammatically correct, but also explicit and lucid in their meaning.
