Georgina in a few words

Following an undergraduate degree in Creative Writing, I have worked on a freelance basis for 7+ years editing and proofreading all types of writing, from resumes and cover letters, to admissions essays and college papers, to professional reports published by organizations like the OECD. I have been through the grad school application process twice, so I'm familiar with the written demands of this process, and received an A for my MBA master's thesis, which was a report of 35 000 words. Familiar with the conventions of both British and American English, the use of referencing systems such as mendeley, and am also experienced in writing for PowerPoint. I scored in the 97th percentile in the verbal component of the GMAT exam.
