Proofreader

I have developed my proofreading skills during my careers as an information professional and project manager. In 2020 I formalised my proofreading skills by taking an industry-recognised qualification.  I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). 

I have experience of proofreading and copy-editing planning and medico-legal documents which require particular care and attention to detail.

My ambition is to develop links with small and medium sized businesses to offer a bespoke service, offering a range of proofreading services that are fast, affordable and high quality. I believe passionately in the importance of local and small businesses which put money back into the community and help build stronger communities.
