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. Working at Heffers Booksellers, Cambridge, gave me an invaluable insight into the art of bookselling, customer service and publishing.
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 am proficient in Italian; a fast touch-typist with good IT skills; and for several years I have worked extensively as a freelance proofreader and copy-editor with publishers, educational institutions, charities, businesses, authors, university students and academics from around the world. I also understand and respect the ethical guidelines for students laid down by the SfEP and academic institutions.
