More About Jamie

Like most editors, I'm a hopeless perfectionist and a lifelong word nerd. The kind who proofreads a Post-it before sticking it on the fridge and has opinions about the serial comma.

I triple majored in Linguistics, French, and Comparative Literature because one two wasn't enough. Then I pursued an MA in Applied Linguistics because a 15,000-word dissertation sounded like fun.

It was.

I've interned at publishing houses, tutored ESL students, and written magazine articles and web copy. I've edited hundreds of personal statements, corporate blog posts, and academic essays. I've worked in university recruitment and know the ins and outs of admissions.

I will provide a meticulous edit of your document along with suggestions for further improvement. For a direct request, you can usually catch me between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM Central European Time.

What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?

I'll edit anything I can get my hands on, but I'm partial to personal statements, academic essays, and corporate communications (articles, blog posts, case studies, and the like).

In what subject areas are you an expert?

Literature, linguistics, French, university admissions, corporate communications, travel

I also have extensive experience editing for healthcare and tech clients on topics ranging from evidence-based design to performance monitoring, big data, and cyber security.

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

My hobbies include reading, writing, Netflix, and cheese.
