Are you looking for excellence? I graduated cum laude with distinction from Yale College in six semesters and will bring the same intelligence and hard work to your writing or editing project.

While my early career focused on water resources, sprawl and planning, land conservation and GIS, more recently I have focused my attention on my true passion of writing and editing. As an editor at Top Admit Consulting, I am known for my ability to meet a deadline and to work effectively across cultures and with difficult clients. I have a near-perfect satisfaction rating (4.95 out of 5 with over 200 reviews). My specialization at Top Admit is editing letters and resumes.

My personal passion is helping people write their life stories. As a young adult, I had the opportunity to help my grandmother self-publish her memoir. She had spent years of her life writing, but needed an outside voice to help her to sift through her work, organize, and clarify to create a cohesive narrative. I later continued this passion through the Eden Alternative’s Embracing Elderhood program, spending a year interviewing and writing the life story of participants.

When I’m not editing or writing for clients, you can often find me working on my own books. I live in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia with my husband and three kids.
