More About Sarah

As an editor, regardless of the type of edit I'm doing, I strive to help you look as good as possible and help you grow and improve. I'm a fan of positive feedback and positive reinforcement, though I am not afraid to let you know where you can improve. I am a diligent and comprehensive editor and writer.

What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?

I love fiction: supernatural, horror, science, general. I love the freedom and creativity it requires. Think of Stephen King. If I could edit for Stephen King, I'd lose my mind. And then I'd edit his work. And love it.

I'm proficient with technical documentation: software development documents, test plans and scripts, continuity of operations, etc.

I'm great with academic papers, particularly APA style, though I am knowledgeable in Chicago and MLA. I also have some experience with Harvard and ASA.

Miscellaneous office communications: resumes, awards packages, employee appraisals, particularly those used by federal government agencies (e.g. Department of the Air Force, Department of Defense, and Defense Information Systems Agency).

In what subject areas are you an expert?

I'm a great choice for technical documentation because I've written so much of it in my information technology career (database developer, database security administrator, *Nix shell script writer, Air Force computer programming course instructor, test script developer, and test plan writer). I have a lot of experience editing (everything from proofreading to substantive editing) college admissions essays.

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

I play with my dog, Fenris, my cuddly fur-baby. When he allows it, I write fiction stories and poetry. Sometimes, I can just go outside with Fenris and he thinks I'm playing. So I can take that time to read.

Netflix streams something wonderful to my house just about every single day.
While I'm not a movie buff, I do enjoy movies.

Gaming. Yes, I'm a role-player (Champions, since you ask).

I like to learn new things so I take continuing education classes--mostly for writing and editing.

I enjoy cooking. When I cook things well, I enjoy eating them.
