More About Jane

In what subject areas are you an expert?

I have BAs in history and French and an MA and PhD in art history, so it's pretty safe to say that I've done a lot of writing. I also worked at our university writing center for 5 years helping all kinds of students working on a wide range of projects, so I'm really comfortable with any subject and at any level. I've spent several years teaching freshman writing classes as well as art history and humanities courses to undergrads and graduate students. I really love working with people and helping writers develop their skills and confidence.

What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?

I'm happy to edit any material! I love having the ability to switch between genres constantly. It keeps me on my toes and makes things interesting! While I have a lot of pedagogical experience working with writers who are developing their own arguments in things like essays and dissertations, I also have a soft spot for working with creatives. I spent many years working in art museums which made me more sensitive to the needs of creative people and informs my commitment to the arts in every form. In general, coming up with your own ideas and trying to articulate them to someone is a real skill, and I love helping people with this.

What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?

When I'm away from my computer, I'm most often chasing after my two young kids! Their energy is boundless! Outside of mom life, if you can say that there is an outside to this role, you would likely find me cooking or baking. I'm a sucker for Great British Bake Off, Chef's Table, and Somebody Feed Phil, really any food-related show. In addition to editing, I also work as a childbirth educator and teach HypnoBirthing classes to expectant parents. Having birthed both a baby and a dissertation, I can say that there's some similarities in the aches and pains and in the amount of work involved in both! Having coping mechanisms and a plan is vital in either endeavor!
