Favorite referencing style
I personally enjoy working with APA, as it is what I used most often during my undergraduate career.
Why I became an editor
I loved my writing courses during my undergraduate career in biology. I saw the difference between scientists who could articulate their research narratives in compelling ways and scientists who struggled to write effectively.
Everyone has a story to tell, scientific or otherwise. I was inspired to be an editor to help others allow their voices shine through their writing. Errors detract from a reader's focus and can even damage credibility. As such, I consider it a privilege to help authors refine their work.
Background and experience
I helped to prepare a research abstract and presentation while working at a behavioral neuroscience laboratory during my undergraduate career.
Moreover, I wrote professional incident reports as a resident assistant at Michigan State and proofread the reports of my colleagues prior to submission for further review.
In my roles as an academic coach/tutor, I have had the privilege to help many students (particularly freshmen) refine their academic work.
Why I love proofreading and editing
There is a particular confidence that comes from writing unmarred by mistakes. In my own writing, I have experienced the joy when a good paper becomes excellent through meaningful revisions. Thus, I find great delight in helping authors to deliver their messages clearly, concisely, and professionally. I have a special place in my heart for scientific writing, though I also love academic and creative writing.
