About Me

Hello! My name is Ashley. I’m a former English teacher focusing on my career as a freelance editor and proofreader in the Tampa Bay area. I specialize in academic content, professional documentation (SOPs, technical writing), verbatim transcription and legal documents, and book indexing. I also enjoy developing literary and nonfiction work.



  • Before becoming an English teacher, I was a training manager for several companies in Tampa.
  • I have bachelor degrees in English, psychology, and sociology from Ashford University out of Clinton, Iowa.
  • My M.Ed. from Ashford University is in curriculum and instruction.
  • I’m currently pursuing a Ph.D. in educational research and evaluation at Nova Southeastern University.
  • I’ve been proofreading and editing professionally since 2006.

Professional Information:

*Note: This does not limit me from other work; it’s just what I do most of the time!

  • I continue to complete continuing education courses, as well:
    • Fundamentals of Editing
    • Academic Editing for Graduate Coursework
    • Accuracy in the Digital Age
    • Professional Scoping
    • Legal and Medical Terminologies
    • and more!
  • I am always more than happy to edit or proofread a sample just for you.
    • I also have a digital portfolio readily available if that is something you are interested in seeing.
