About me

Do you need a professional to check the text?

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.

My proofreading services offer quality and high standard of my work. With those skills come enthusiasm and integrity.


SfEP courses (most recent first):

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


I graduated in the late 80s with a B.Ed in Primary Education, having grown up in Paisley, and ventured ‘South of the Border’ – eek!   A former Primary School teacher in Essex, for much longer than I care to remember, I have been applying my professional skills as a freelancer. With MUCH enthusiasm.

As a fun extra, I home tutor Primary School children on a 1-1 basis. Some habits are hard to break. Well, it gets me away from the laptop. With two strapping sons and an artistic husband, all over 6′ tall, I also need little people in my life. Stroking the cats helps too.
