My time is split between copy editing and writing features and columns. I am a former content coordinator at The Dallas Morning News editorial department. There, I honed my editing and writing skills, often under deadline pressure, so much so that I have no trouble with quick turnarounds. I have also done fact-checking for a national magazine. I am a perfectionist when it comes to editing and writing. Right now, I am working on a piece for a national magazine and editing a 167-page book.
