I am an editorial consultant with 26+ years experience providing meticulous scientific, technical, and medical editing services to a wide range of clients. I focus on improving the language, flow, structure, clarity, and correctness of your texts. I will edit your good articles and documents into excellent final products. I am Board-certified as a medical editor by BELS (Board of Editors in the Life Sciences). I use PerfectIt Pro, an add-on for MS Word that calls out errors not flagged by spellcheck, including inconsistent acronym use, random capitalization, and inconsistent numbers. I am well-versed in AMA and CSE style guides. I use large dual monitors for faster fact-checking and for increased accuracy in editing at 190%+ view. I also edit grant applications and all types of proposals.
