More About Kelly Suzan
I'm a full-time editor with more than 15 years of creative, professional, and technical editing for publishers, organizations, and government agencies. I've put my pencil to freelance projects that range from an LGBT lifestyle iPad app, to magazines for high-end restaurants, to a book celebrating the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. I also ghostwrote Copyediting and Proofreading for Dummies. I hold a Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing from Poynter News University.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
I love any project that allows me to help a fellow wordsmith strengthen his or her writing, smooth awkward language, and ensure consistency, all while maintaining the integrity of his or her voice and message.
In what subject areas are you an expert?
My word-nerdliness knows no bounds. I've worked on population studies and demographic reports, academic theses, fundraising materials, art and science collections, restaurant magazines, and poetry and fiction. Which has given me the chance to work with just about every style out there: from the overweeningly arcane Government Printing Office to the usual suspects — AP, Chicago, APA, and New York Times.
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
When I'm not geeking out over the near domination of the serial comma or manhandling the latest addition to my style guide collection, I can be found exploring my neighborhood with my husband and son, who is young enough for his wishes to include becoming a robot.

Client Feedback and Praise
The way you did GIF was fine. I just had to use capitalization in the subheads. Thanks for a great edit!
I left back end as two separate words throughout. I Googled and went with how Wikipedia write it. Thanks for a great edit :)
Hi Kelly, Just a few notes: Sonia and Jerod's names were spelled wrong. There was a speaker name missing at the beginning of a new subhead. The HTML for [episode transcript] had an _ and / missing. I removed the link from 'Jay Baer' and added it to 'release some information.' Thank you :)
It was 'obtain.' Thanks for another great edit. Happy Holidays!!
Thanks for a great edit :)
