Writing and Editing Services

I am excited about being a member of the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce community. I started my business in December of 2022 and provide affordable editorial and writing services. Currently, I am editing a book for an author and enjoying the collaborative process. I offer a strong background in writing and editing; I have an English literature degree and a law degree. My background in government service totals twenty-five years. While in the public sector, I edited and proofread everything from examination questions to other confidential materials. I welcome working with individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations on a variety of projects and tasks. I can accommodate any budget. I look forward to the opportunity to help and be of service.
