Hi! I am Ashley, a freelance editor and proofreader based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, and I can help you create clear and concise content.

About Me

A dedicated word nerd who loves reading, traveling, and the Oxford comma. A self-proclaimed perfectionist—and em dash enthusiast—who pays extreme attention to detail and crafts concise yet distinguished content.

I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism and English with a minor in information systems.

Over the past five years, I’ve worked in publishing, advertising, marketing, and nonprofit sectors. Although I specialize in words, I am passionate about presenting polished, professional work with an emphasis on engaging content and intriguing designs. I have edited fiction and non-fiction books, advertising campaigns, brochures, magazine articles, blogs, newsletters, and business proposals. To learn more about my professional background, please view my résumé.

When I’m not tackling a new project, I spend my time traveling and cavorting with my dog, Willow. I also enjoy plunging into a new book, visiting family and friends around the world, and cheering on my Tar Heels.

Feel free to reach out to me if you would like to discuss a project your have in mind!
