I embarked on my editorial trade at Oxford University Press in the ELT (English Language Teaching) division where I learned how a book is built, refined and published. My principal responsibilities were copy-editing, proofreading and project management.
Prior to publishing, I worked in ceramics, corporate communications, energy consultancy, and import/export, so I have experience in both academic and business worlds.
Freelance since 2014, I enjoy getting down into the detail to improve the accuracy and flow of the written word. I have an inquisitive nature and enjoy variety, hence my broad portfolio of clients and projects. I speak Spanish and am fascinated by all things hispanic – the language, culture and art.
When not staring at two screens, I like reading, walking, art and culture. I also indulge my creative bent by producing hand-painted ceramic tiles and, more recently, creating linocut designs.
Oh yes, I'm also well known for being a bit of a tulip freak...
An advocate of CPD (Continuing Professional Development), I train with the CIEP and PTC (Publishing Training Centre) to refresh or update my editorial knowledge. I also enjoy learning new skills - for the benefit of both my business and my brain.
