Joanne in a few words

An international education publisher for 8 years, along with 20 years editorial freelancing experience. My professional skills include developing content strategy, adapting content, proofreading, development, line and copy editing, transcription and script production/review. I have lived and studied in the US, have a degree in US literature and worked on several American English titles, so American English is no obstacle for me.
