Couldn't be happier with my experience with Katie! She helped me with graduate school application essays that were very short. I wanted to get a lot of information across and she helped me navigate it, so my ideas were concise, genuine and eloquent. I highly suggest meeting with her in person as after just one meeting, we were able to construct an outline for an essay that before had been a mess of a free write. She enjoys doing this work and cares about each project, to the point she researched the specific program I was applying to, so as to more properly gear my personal statement for them. Without a doubt my go to for professional proofreading and editing.

I was the host of a public affairs radio show --- Greater Long Beach -- named after the online magazine I founded in 2010. My career has taken me to two Olympic Games, three Super Bowls, 10 Rose Bowls, the World Series, the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys, the OJ Simpson and Snoop Dogg murder trials. Among literally thousands of interview, I've had memorable conversations with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Bob Hope, Tommy Lasorda, Gwen Stefani, Red Skelton and Gene Autry.

About

Over 15 years of experience in translation, essay writing and proofreading vouch for my life-long passion for this field and have earned me extensive knowledge and outstanding skills. Even so, professional translations take more than knowledge and skills; it’s a process of cultivating techniques and refining abilities to find culturally linguistic equivalence in the target language. My translations begin with the understanding that any material needs to be localized in order to successfully convey a message; current language use is taken into account, while keeping syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic integrity in the target language. My proofreading strategies are based on systematic layered-proofing techniques. My fields of interest have been general market, media and advertising, but my experience is extensive and all-inclusive.

About

I am a college student (majoring in English) and spend the majority of my free time writing and reading. Yes, I am the person that my friends ask to look over their resume. Yes, I am the person who can tell you where the spelling errors are in quite a few famous books. No, I am not a total stickler for "the rules" all of the time, and understand that style is just as important as what you are actually trying to say. I have both a Mac and a PC so I can view pretty much any type of document. If you have a hardcopy of your draft, even better! Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.
