A BIT MORE ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Meghan! Thanks for visiting my bio page. I look forward to connecting with you and hearing about your current project. I know how important it is to find an expert copy editor and/or proofreader that you can trust with the book or business content you've worked so hard to create, so please allow me to introduce myself.

 

I'm originally from the Chicago area, and I studied communication and English at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I chose English specifically because of my love for grammar.

During my senior year of college, I studied abroad in Verona, Italy, and caught the travel bug. After graduating, I spent a year in Madrid working as an au pair, teaching English to the two girls I cared for while immersing myself in Spanish culture (and food).

When I returned to the US, I worked for a healthcare trade publication in Chicago, then for nonprofit organizations in both Chicago and Houston. When I moved back to the Midwest (Columbus, Ohio, specifically), I became the editor of an online publication geared toward sales professionals.

 

To strengthen my copyediting and proofreading skills, I completed a course hosted by Edit Republic in 2019. I am a detail-oriented, efficient freelance copy editor, and I can proudly say that I love what I do.

When we collaborate on your project, you'll find that I'll always work to preserve your voice. As an editor, it's my responsibility to ensure your text is polished and upholds your writing style. Clear, error-free content lends you credibility, while mistakes in your text can undermine all the hard work you've put into it. Let's connect so you can gain the confidence to share the message that you know is ready for the world to read.
