"I highly recommend Erika for any and all of your proofreading needs. She is thorough, fast, and pays attention to even the tiniest detail. The best part is that she is fun to work with -- you can tell Erika is truly passionate about what she does!" - Danielle R

Credentials & Specialties
I am a graduate of General Proofreading: Theory and Practice™, a "rigorous training program of study designed to effectively facilitate mastery in the art of proofreading for content creators." Sounds fancy, huh? :)
I normally refer to The Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster's Unabridged Dictionary. If you have a specific style guide or preference you want me to follow, just provide me with a copy before I start proofing.
There are tons of proofreaders out there.
Why should you hire me?
Because I will care as much about your project as you do.
(I will not go to sleep cuddling my laptop, but short of that, yes!) Sadly, a single typo can make the reader lose interest or confidence in you, because we do get judged by what we publish. If you found a misspelled word on this site, would you trust me to do your proofreading?
No matter what it is (a short story, a book, or a blog post explaining how to take care of the dinosaur problem in your cabbage patch), it needs to be flawless. Let me be your final pair of eyes and make sure your grammar is as compelling as your story!
"Erika did a great job proofreading my website! She caught some pesky hyphens for me and suggested some words that had apparently gone AWOL. I am excited to work with her, and I highly recommend both her skills and her positivity! Her enthusiastic love of words is contagious." - Jody S.
