About me

This is my freelance proofreading business based in Essex. I started as an Entry Level Member of the Society of Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) in January 2016. I upgraded in February 2018 by training and gaining experience. I am now registered as an Intermediate Member.

I take pride in the quality and high standard of my work. I am enthusiastic and operate with integrity.

SfEP courses completed are, from most recent:

  1. ‘Getting work with non-publishers’ workshop (February 2018)
  2. References Course (October 2017)
  3. SfEP 2017 Annual Conference at Wyboston Lakes, Bedford (September 2017)
  4. Proofreading Progress Course (May 2017)

I continue to attend Annual Conferences to add to my professional development. I thoroughly enjoy networking with fellow editing professionals, both locally and virtually online @TheSfEP.

I graduated in 1987 with a B.Ed degree in Primary Education from Glasgow University, having grown up in Paisley.   A former Primary School teacher in Essex – for longer than I care to remember – I am enthusiastic about applying my professional skills in a different direction.

As a fun extra, I home tutor Primary School children on a 1-1 basis. Some habits are hard to break.
