41 Years Strong!

Throughout my corporate career, I became known as the “go-to person” for proofing and editing copy within the company. When the management consulting firm I was working with disbanded in 1977, the clients I had acquired on their behalf encouraged me to open my own secretarial/copyediting service, which I did on March 1, 1977.

Welcome to Redline Copyediting

When it absolutely has to be done right the first time!

A stickler for detail, with a keen eye for accuracy, my services include proofreading for “the obvious”; copyediting for spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors; correcting syntax; etc.

I possess a strong and dedicated work ethic and pride myself on prompt and reliable service, at a reasonable price.

Whatever your project containing the written word, if you have an existing requirement for my abilities, or anticipate the possibility in the future, I would welcome the opportunity to be of service.
