More About Becky

I've been editing full-time for almost a decade, and I love making good copy even better. Some people are specialists, but I consider myself a jack of all trades. In fact, variety is what keeps me so interested in my profession.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
With my background in marketing and consumer insights, I'm good at editing corporate documents and making dull copy sparkle. I've also worked in education and other nonprofits, so send me your reports, presentations, websites and whatnot. You can have me look over your cover letters and resumes because I also work as an editor and manager for a staffing company.
In what subject areas are you an expert?
• multicultural and global issues (I have lived in Taiwan, Uganda, Tanzania, the US, and France) • consumer insights, with expertise in health/beauty, food/beverage, home/fashion, hotel/hospitality, and demographics • ESL • job search • languages and linguistics • press releases and web copy • music
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
I have several other clients for whom I write, edit and translate (FR>EN). In my downtime, I enjoy watching French films, traveling overseas, experimenting with recipes from all over the world, watching and reading sci-fi, biking (Minneapolis is the #1 biking capital in the US!), playing piano, singing jazz standards, and playing Words with Friends. I have a clever husband, three thoughtful (most of the time) children, and a sweet cat named Héloïse.
  • BA in journalism and French, MA in comparative linguistics
  • Proficient in most styles, especially AP, MLA and APA
  • US, UK or Canada styles
  • Based in Minneapolis (US Central Time) but have lived all over the world
