Hi! I’m Anna. I live in Essex and I’ve been proofreading and copy-editing for 4 years. I work part time as a paediatric dietician, running clinics and working to very tight deadlines. As much as I love being a dietician, saving babies, helping children achieve their growth potential and manage their chronic illness through nutrition, I also love working with words, which is essential for anyone working as an editor. 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 Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). Here’s my directory entry.
