I am a freelance proofreader and copy-editor, based in Glasgow, working in the humanities and educational publishing, particularly English Language Teaching. I work for a variety of publishers on course books, supplementary materials, website content and promotional materials, in both print and digital format.
I also work for individuals and organisations on a wide range of documents including reports, catalogues, promotional materials, theses and dissertations.
I have a BSc in Physiotherapy and worked as a chartered physiotherapist in the NHS for 25 years. My specialism was trauma and musculoskeletal disorders, and I was also a clinical educator for BSc and MSc students on placement from Caledonian University, Glasgow.
Areas of special interest include English Language Teaching, the allied health professions (particularly physiotherapy), sports medicine, health and wellness, nursing and midwifery, history (ancient and modern), film and TV, travel, sport (especially tennis), Scotland and cookery.
I'm an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and abide by their Code of Practice. I'm also co-ordinator of the local SfEP Glasgow group.
