I am a professional writer dedicated to sharing helpful insights with prospective proofreaders and editors. Specializing in travel writing and fiction, I enjoy creating educational and engaging content. I previously taught English as a second language for seven years in Canada and Europe.

I came to write for Knowadays after nearly a year of writing blog content for Proofed. The opportunity to write for Knowadays seemed like a great way to take my writing career further. Since commencing my Knowadays position, I’ve come to enjoy crafting posts about grammar points for proofreaders and writing tips for fiction authors.
