Educator to Editor

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

The journey to editing started with teaching.

I've always loved words. How they build into sentences, paragraphs, and stories that convey a depth of emotion. Style, form, characters, and plot shape worlds of past, present and future.

“Grammar is a piano I play by ear. All I know about grammar is its power.” Joan Didion

I studied the English language in college. I read classics and contemporary. I learned to recognize the delicate way that words come together. My eye for grammar and passion for accuracy made me the go-to person for wordsmithing essays and articles of my peers.

My degree led me to education. I became certified to teach grades 7-12. There is no greater joy - or horror - than teaching literature to teens.

From Educator to Editor

Years in the classroom taught me how to be patient. Guiding lessons with empathy goes farther than terse directions. I apply this to my relationships with my current writers. I collaborate rather than consult.

The world of education is evolving, and so did my interest. I decided to move into a role in higher education and begin editing emerging authors. No matter the subject or complexity, I find every word fascinating.

I hope you will join me on your writing journey. Everyone has a story to tell; sometimes you just need a little help telling it.
