Contact: Susan Garcia, editor.


Years in field: 5. Years as a freelancer: 1. "Primary Services I Provide: Editing (nonfiction preferred): I bring a unique editing perspective to material on leadership and management, human resources, or self-help topics. As a former senior leader and instructor at a military academy, I not only "walked the talk" but also taught curriculum on conflict management, organizational behavior, team-building, communication skills, personality assessments (e.g., Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, DiSC), motivational theory, etc. Editing (technical): As a full-time technical editor, I ensured subject matter experts clearly conveyed their ideas and research to a wider audience. My focus is always to improve the clarity of the language without "dumbing down" the content. I not only improve the narratives of technical documents but also enhance accompanying tables, graphs, figures, and maps. Always seeking to improve my skills, I am currently enrolled in the Technical Communication certification at the University of California, San Diego. Copyediting/Proofreading: Naturally meticulous and detail oriented, I have an affinity for editing each line of your writing. I will find and resolve the grammar, syntax, punctuation, and formatting issues, being careful not to change your stylistic voice or intended meaning. I am certified in the Professional Sequence in Editing program, University of California, Berkeley." See resume at www.the-efa.org/members/data/resumes/garcias.pdf.
