CURRICULUM VITAE

I have been a freelance editor for more than 20 years, working for medical communications agencies, medical and healthcare organisations, academic journals, academic book publishers, NGOs and small business clients.

Before going freelance, I worked for a number of business journals, including Pulse, Financial Pulse, Transport Week and Containerisation International, plus IMSworld Publications, producing yearbooks on the medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare environment in 72 countries around the world.

My remit is always to edit or proofread copy to tight deadlines, ensuring conformity with house style and accuracy, plus managing length and content, figures, tables and photographs. Fact-checking, reference sourcing and rewriting are some of the other skills I can offer.

A lot of the copy I deal with has been poorly translated or is written by people whose first language is not English, and I turn this into intelligible English prose while not losing the author’s own voice or style.
