Hi! I’m Anna. I live in Essex and I’ve been proofreading and copyediting for 6 years. I work part time as a paediatric dietician, running clinics and working to tight deadlines. As much as I love being a dietician, saving babies, helping children achieve their growth potential and managing their chronic illness through nutrition, I also love language, especially word construction and usage, something key to successful editing.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been that person that people ask, ‘Can you look over this for me?’, ‘Can you help me format this?’, or ‘How do you do x, y and z in Word, Anna?’ And so I fell into this profession, naturally – it drew me to it by a kind of gravitational pull. And I love it! I’m a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). Here’s my directory entry.
