More About Whitney

Hello! I'm a college admission counselor by day and freelance editor by night (and early morning...and lunchtime...and weekends). I studied strategic communication and marketing during my undergrad career in North Carolina, and last year, I received a master's degree in human behavior.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
Working in college admissions, I read a LOT of admission essays, so I love helping prospective college students learn how to put their best foot forward. For similar reasons, I also love working on resumes, cover letters and CVs, but I enjoy editing of all shapes and kinds. One of my favorite things to do is help writers cut down their word counts - if you've written too much and aren't sure how to condense your work, I'm your girl!
In what subject areas are you an expert?
Most of my studies have been in the humanities, but I consider myself a lifelong learner - I really enjoy reading about topics I haven't explored before, and I'm constantly finding new things that I want to learn more about. My graduate studies were in psychology and thanatology, so I'm especially familiar with those areas and with APA format. I'm also a stickler for AP style from my days as a college newspaper editor!
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
I work full-time at a college and part-time as a cheesemonger at a local cheese shop (best job ever?), which keeps me pretty busy. I also love to read - one of my favorite activities is curling up by the fire with a good book on a gloomy day.
