Favorite referencing style
APA because I've used it a lot and it makes sense to me.
Why I became an editor
I studied psychology and public health in college, and I have worked in medicine for most of my adult life. I have always believed understanding psychology is an important foundation for working in medicine or public health. I have always wanted to have an impact on people's lives. I want people to be glad they met me!
Having a graduate degree means that I wrote a lot of papers. A lot! I was also usually the editor during group work. Which I volunteered for! I have always enjoyed it and I want to help other people perfect their writing and do the editing and proofreading they may not want to.
Background and experience
I have previously worked as a medical assistant for various specialties and I have also worked as a research assistant for a psychiatry lab. I did an internship with the Department of Health and assisted with proofreading documents during that time.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I really enjoy helping to perfect someone's writing. It makes me feel good to be able to help them and produce a great piece of writing. I also enjoy reading and learning about lots of different subjects. Due to my schooling, I am very experienced with APA referencing, and I also have experience in AMA referencing.
