Services for Researchers
You are a scholar in the social sciences, humanities, or life sciences, and you want to ensure that your argument communicates effectively with your audience. Whether you’re writing articles, reports, dissertations, or books, I can help your ideas shine through.
Services for Editors
Your journal has its own style and specifications; a fine-tuned publishing workflow; and a reputation for rigorous intellectual communication. Whatever your particular processes, I adapt my services to your journal’s needs — so that you can concentrate on publishing high-impact content.

How Do I Know If I Need an Editor?
What is an editor?
A freelance editor (c’est moi) has many of the same roles and goals as a journal or series editor — but we provide more hands-on support during the process of manuscript writing, reviewing, submitting, and proofing.
How Do I Know if I need an editor?
- You’re spending time formatting your manuscript to a journal’s specifications instead of writing something new.
- You could use some expert, concrete, non-judgmental feedback.
- Thought of looking at that manuscript one more time makes you feel like running out into the street and just keep going.
- You want to ask for feedback from your colleagues but don’t know how.
Basically: no matter what stage they’re in, everyone needs (and deserves) an editor.

What are your rates?
I have a PhD in Anthropology and a passion for helping people communicate ideas.
Like you, I am a writer and a researcher. I know how important it is to communicate your research to others — whether they be specialists in your subfield, members of the press, or your best friend’s inquisitive uncle.
