A Bit About Me
I am a retired Language Arts teacher with thirty years of classroom experience…a proofreader with a keen eye for detail and with unwavering focus. If I were to count, I would probably discover that I have proofread over a thousand pieces of writing-from poems to essays and from student theses to resumes-which qualifies as the best type of experience possible! I have always been passionate about reading, writing, and the rules that guide both...the Rules of the English Language.
Upon retirement, I decided to launch a freelance proofreading business which has proven to be incredibly exciting! I love engaging with the projects on which I work, and I am honored to contribute to every final product. I also gain a feeling of accomplishment knowing that my attention to the smaller details has freed-up time for my clients to focus on the important details…that of running a successful business!

In December of 1995, my father passed away from a ruptured aneurysm on his aorta. At that time, our family consisted of my father and me due to the fact that I am an only child and my mother had passed away four years earlier.
In 2003, I wrote a memoir that encompassed the emotions and the memories of that day…December 24. You see, this day is etched in my memory not only because of the suddenness of his death, but also because of the Christmas gift I received from him. Three hours after his death, a beautiful Christmas bouquet of carnations, chrysanthemums, and roses-my dad’s favorite flowers-was delivered to my home. Weeks earlier, he had arranged the delivery to be made on Christmas Eve, never realizing how poignant the delivery would be. Instead of seeing the timing of this gift as a sad coincidence, I viewed it as a very special message…a message from my dad reminding me of his love.
In 2004, this memoir was published in A Cup of Comfort for Christmas which is a collection of memoirs from across the globe. This publication is one of which I am very proud!
