I collaborate with you to make your story shine brightly and authentically. My mission is to guide you toward the best possible version of your writing while respecting your unique voice and vision. In editing, I keep the best interest of both writer and reader in mind. My editorial approach is rooted in compassion and honesty.
I'm an alumna of the editing program at the University of Washington where I was trained in all aspects of editing. As a writer myself, I understand the sensitive nature of letting an editor touch your work. A manuscript is like a baby: your editor should be a thoughtful caregiver.
