About me

I have a degree in French and German and, after graduating, qualified as a chartered accountant.

I spent the first few years of my post-qualification career in the investment industry. As part of my duties, I was responsible for the publication of interim and final reports and accounts, listing documents and brochures for various quoted clients. After a short break to raise my family, I established an editing business in 1999 and proofread/copy-edited numerous study manuals and textbooks on many subjects including business management, organisation theory, behaviour and strategy, ethics, corporate governance, financial reporting, law, economics, auditing, bookkeeping and financial management.

In 2002 I was asked to join the board of an investment business on a part-time basis. However, the role took up a considerable amount of my time and so, in early 2003, I reluctantly closed my editing business because I could no longer continue to offer my clients the service they deserved.

In 2012 I re-established my editing business and have recently undertaken training courses with both the Publishing Training Centre – Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning (pass with merit) – and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders – Introduction to copy-editing and Efficient copy-editing – to update my knowledge and skills.

I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
