An expert editor, my work is touted by clients as "exceptional," "creative," "visionary," "impeccable," "professional," "clear," "resourceful," and "highly recommended." I provide developmental, copy- and line-editing for projects from the sublimely creative to the scientifically specific. As an academic writer, I am particularly well-versed in medical writing. My education and professional backgrounds range from medicine and medical humanities, medical sociology and anthropology of the body, to biology and ecology, contemporary philosophy, and the history of cultural beliefs. In addition, I have nearly three decades of experience as a healthcare provider and educator. I work with clients in a uniquely personal albeit professional and collaborative manner to evoke the clearest, most authentic expression that best articulates intention, whether of academic writing, a good story, or a finely choreographed expression of both. To wit, I am a fastidious editor. My approach is methodical and detail-oriented with a view of the whole. I am attentive to the piece of writing as a clearly articulated narrative progression, and to the details of word-choice, grammar, punctuation, and format. My work is founded upon a value for excellence in service, which means delivering exemplary work in a timely and professional manner. It is my view that good writing is well-researched, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. It has the capacity to change minds and transform lives, because the writing—well tuned—is experienced by the reader as an integrated whole. It both captures the mind and transcends it as a deeply personal experience of the heart. Writer is changed. Reader is changed. I am most at home with projects that push the boundaries of existing paradigms—or endeavors that envision new cultural patterns, espouse an integrative view, and open important questions. Not only am I practiced at engaging such aims creatively and as a writer, I am passionate about doing so.
Lost for words? Do you have something to say but you just can't seem to find the right words? Let me help you with that. My love affair with the written word began when I was about 10 years old. I picked up a copy of Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye" from the library (my second home) and have been hooked ever since. I have a BA, MA, and PhD all in Philosophy. I am also well versed in educational theory, sociology, anthropology, political theory, and have a fondness for mythology and history. In addition to my own writing and research, I have worked as a college instructor for several years and so I am very comfortable offering feedback and editing academic papers. I have led and participated in several workshops and retreats focused on dissertation completion. I have regularly presented my research at academic conferences and have often been invited to give talks and speeches. I have received several Fellowships and recognition for my research and scholarship. While the bulk of my writing is academic, I have begun to experiment with creative writing and am presently working on a collaborative project with graphic novelist Steven Yu. I possess a great deal of experience in the non-profit sector and in higher ed administration and so know how to write project proposals with some experience writing successful grant proposals as well. I believe that writing is an incredibly important tool. We all have something to say and it is worth saying it well. In my work with students I have consistently found that, with a little bit of support and guidance, anyone can become a better writer.
