I’m a freelance proofreader and an Intermediate member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.

I have seven years in-house experience in the publishing industry: I worked on academic journals at Royal Chemistry Society and Cambridge University Press, and then on children’s fiction for the LEGO Group.
