More About Jessie
I'm a Colorado native with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. I'm a higher education professional by day, with over four years of experience in academic administration and student affairs. By night, I edit professionally and write articles for a popular online publication. I was offered my first professional editing position before I even graduated from college, and I have experience editing everything from English 101 papers to 500-page fiction novels set in medieval England.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
I really enjoy editing anything and everything. For me, helping people find and fine-tune their voice is incredibly rewarding. That said, my favorite pieces to edit are fiction, creative non-fiction, anything historical, philosophy-focused papers, and anything to do with reporting on/responding to books. I have also discovered I really enjoy helping people with statements of purpose for college and/or job applications.
In what subject areas are you an expert?
I didn't go to college for English Literature for the paycheck, but because I absolutely love reading and critically analyzing books of all kinds--even when I'm just reading for fun. Seriously. You should see the highlighting and post-it flagging I've done to books I was just given as birthday gifts. I've read essentially every canonical book a person might read in high school or college, and then some-odd thousand beyond that (I've never actually sat down and tried to count). As such, my background is mostly in academic and research writing, and those types of papers come easiest to me. I'm really familiar with all of the style guides, but APA and MLA are second nature at this point. I don't know if this can be considered a "subject area" but one thing I am really good at is noticing repetition of particular words or ideas that tend to make a piece bland (like always saying "very good" or "very smart" or "very tired"), and having synonyms to replace them with. My brain is like a thesaurus.
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
I'm kind of a workaholic, but in my downtime, I read (for fun!), watch a ridiculous amount of TV via Netflix and Hulu, spend entirely too much time scrolling through my Twitter feed, and play World of Warcraft or old-school NES games. I also have three dogs and a cat who are basically my whole world, so I spend a lot of time with them.
