    I am a professional indexer and proofreader seeking to increase the proofreading side of my business. I am willing to accept projects of all sizes and varieties, ranging anywhere from small articles to large textbooks. I have been proofreading professionally since 1988, where as Assistant Production Editor at Warner Books (now known as Grand Central Publishing), I was responsible for proofreading the content of all front matter for all mass market books published. Since then, I have held various full-time jobs requiring a variety of proofreading duties, and began freelancing in 2001. I am highly skilled at proofreading, and I enjoy it, and in fact I cannot help but find typographical errors often, even when I am not looking for them. My objective is to use my proofreading skills and experience to help you with whatever proofreading needs you may have.  less

    It was in 2009 when my daughter introduced me to oDesk. She, being a young fulltime mom then, realized how convenient and more rewarding it was to be able to work and at the same time be home and take care of her baby. I have, for more than 25 years, focused my energies on fulltime mothering, homeschooling and ministry myself, so I can't agree with her more. I also find oDesk as a wonderful opportunity to combine my family and ministry roles with my desire to further enhance my personal skills. My experience with oDesk thus far has been very rewarding, in terms of personal growth in knowledge and skills, and also in terms of opportunity to develop good working relationships with clients. My objective is simply to provide high-quality and dependable service. I am a diligent worker, preferring to work independently but delivering quick and timely service.  less
