I am a newly established copy editor and proofreader based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have a BA in English with a German minor from Grand Valley State University, and my work history ranges from the fields of education and nonprofit to office administration for a small manufacturing company. I began retraining as an editor in January 2018, and I expect to complete my editing certificate from the University of Chicago Graham School in May 2019. I work primarily with self-publishing authors of fiction and creative nonfiction.

Sara did an excellent job beta reading my manuscript. The overall commentary provided really helped me to get a bird’s eye view of my world, characters, pacing and plot. At the same time, I feel like she really understood the story, as opposed to just cataloging words and events, something that is hard to come by in a beta or editor. The in-text comments were excellent and were EXACTLY what I was looking for. I also very much appreciated her attention to my follow-up questions which required more analysis of the story than I would have expected from a beta read. Highly recommended!
