  • Proofreading

In addition, Kelly is available to edit web copy, individual articles, and other business materials.



Since 2004, I have had a myriad of editorial positions throughout the publishing industry—from development to acquisitions and management—and within every role that I have held, I have looked to Kelly for editorial insight, direction, and development. Kelly brings perceptiveness and editorial instinct rarely found in most publication circles. She was made to create and inspire through her work. She applies her natural editorial and literary traits to every project with creativity and professionalism. As an academic publisher, I have worked with Kelly for any project that did not require subject matter expertise. As a result, she has been asked to handle diverse and broad subject matter—from academic to poetic. She can inform publication elements from technical style to page design. I have worked with her as a copyeditor, a photo researcher, a caption-writer, and the list goes on. She adheres to timelines and understands the importance of precision with the printed word. Her professionalism is a welcome sight to any author, project manager, editor, or publisher. Put plainly, Kelly is intelligent, perceptive, creative, and professional. She adds value to every project put in front of her. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again. — Suzanna B., Chicago, IL
