Professional proofreading & copy-editing

About me

I am a native English speaker with a degree in Latin and English from Nottingham University, where I was also editor of the student magazine. A decade working at Heffers Booksellers in Cambridge offered me an invaluable insight into the world of bookselling, customer service and publishing, as well as providing the perfect workplace for a lover of words and books.


As Publications Officer at St John's College, Cambridge, I produced top-quality literature, which required superb attention to detail, flexibility, excellent organisation skills and an ability to deal with people at all levels. I speak basic Italian, Spanish and French, which really helps my work with people from around the world; and I am a fast touch-typist with good IT skills. Since 2009 I have worked as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor on a variety of projects with publishers, educational institutions, charities, businesses, book authors, university students and academics from around the world. I also understand and work within the ethical guidelines for students suggested by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading and academic institutions.

Perfect Words is an affordable, professional proofreading and copy-editing service. I can also provide a copywriting service. Clear, concise and plain writing will ensure that your message reaches your target audience. Accurate and engaging copy will set you apart and make you feel more confident. As well as helping with your academic project, I can polish your book draft, blog or brochure, help to coordinate and strengthen your social media presence, or perfect your website, CV or covering letter. We will work as a team, giving you the confidence to share your creations with the world. Excellent customer service, professionalism and integrity are guaranteed.
