I hold a Ph.D. and an M.A. in comparative literature from UCLA and a B.A. in English and French from Stanford University. After receiving my doctorate, I taught writing, literature, history, and French at Harvard University, Tufts University, the University of Massachusetts Boston, and Upward Bound. At UCLA, I worked in the Graduate Writing Center, helping graduate students improve their dissertations, journal articles, theses, seminar papers, grant proposals, fellowship applications, and job market materials.
I began freelancing in 2015, but I've been editing in various capacities for the past 19 years, including a stint as an elementary mathematics textbook editor. I have extensive experience working with non-native English speakers. As a writing instructor, I've spent hundreds of hours coaching writers to move from the seed of a good idea to a polished, well-developed product. No matter what stage your project is in, I can help you reach your writing and publication goals.
I live in a suburb of Boston with my spouse and two young children.
