Why Choose Quality Editing Services?

Writing is not about proving your intelligence by using complicated sentences and big words; it’s about engaging the reader and conveying a clear message. I can help you with your writing goals by editing for style, clarity, flow, grammar, and punctuation. As some writing must be done according to certain guidelines (grant proposals, journal articles, dissertations, etc.), I also help with formatting and review of the document to make sure all guidelines are being followed. I cater to the needs of my clients, so please email or call to discuss your project.

I have worked at the University of Missouri (MU) since 2003. In 2008, I became a grant writer and have assisted faculty across campus on large, interdisciplinary federal proposals, small foundation proposals, and everything in between. I have helped a number of faculty edit and format their journal manuscripts, books, and dossiers, as well as served as proofreader for the MU publication, Illumination, and other reports for the University. Outside of my MU position, I have edited and formatted many doctoral dissertations, journal manuscripts, and various other documents.
