More About Amanda
With advanced degrees in English, History, and Social Justice, and years of experience in an administrative setting, I am a well-rounded editor who's able to transition seamlessly between the academic and administrative world.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
I love working with cover letters, resumes, and personal statements because I find it incredibly rewarding to help a writer present their "best self." I'm also great with copy editing, business communication, and humanities academic writing!
In what subject areas are you an expert?
Whew, well "expert" is kind of a loaded word, but I know a LOT about social media, marketing, cover letters and resumes, social justice, social work, English, history, and post-colonial literature.
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
Mostly spend time with my cats and read everything I can get my hands on! Although, truth be told, I spend a lot of time with my cats even when I am editing on Kibin :D.

Client Feedback and Praise
Thank you for your clear editing. Really love your work
Thanks for your careful comments. It was really helpful. The work you helped was a part of my dissertation, so the questions (for example, in the last comment you left) you have for the event should be answered inside the chapters after these prologues. Anyway, thanks!
I wanted to include this in the attachment of the personal statement draft I just turned in, but I messed that up...Sorry. Hope you get to read it here and then I'll leave a real review in the next paper. Thank you! Hey Amanda and Erin, THANK YOU SO MUCH for editing my first official rough draft; it was very helpful and insightful. And thank you for your kind words, I was worried that people would see me as weak or as making excuses for the experiences I have chosen to highlight. This is my third rough draft of my personal statement for medical school and I would be honored if you could revise this too. I have been revising and editing in order to make it directly about my personal connection to wanting to be a physician and why I am a capable candidate. The maximum length requirement is only 4500 characters WITH spaces and this rough draft is twice as long… Just as before, I am open to suggestions about reorganization and any other suggestions you may have. By the advisors at the medical school, I was advised to not use “I” as much…but I have used it a lot in my personal statement. I’ve tried to edit them out, but I’ve been struggling with it since the paper is supposed to be about my journey to medicine rather than anything else. I initially had the theme that I would speak about witnessing my parents in a caregiver and patient role; then, becoming a caregiver myself; and then having to allow myself to be the patient and have someone care for me. I’m not sure if this still stands with all the revisions. Thank you so much for revising this paper for me! I deeply appreciate it.
