Editing

Developmental, copy, and technical editing. Ability to use DITA to document topic structure and processes.

Web editing: In nearly three years on the integrated marketing team at 4,000-employee healthcare laboratory ARUP, I helped put together the annual magazine, Magnify. I also copy edited the blog, the online version of the magazine, and other departments’ messaging and social media. And took part in a major site rebrand.

As an editor at the websites Nature World News and Headline News and Global News, with New York City’s 33 Universal, I managed seven writers and did developmental edits and updates.

As a copy editor or proofreader (AP, Chicago, GPO, in-house style guides), I’ve delivered projects for:

National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning (Office of Head Start). Website, PDFs, video text, reports. Six months of editing.

Opportunity Council, a housing nonprofit in Bellingham, Wash. Collaborated and edited three web pages.

ASJA Magazine, for the American Society of Journalists and Authors (volunteer). Copy edited several pages in the Summer and Fall 2020 issues.

NCsoft, global videogame corporation, Seattle. Website copy-edit.
