You are the best copy editor!

Your English editing was so perfect that when I read my own text after your work I was fascinated—I can only dream to arrive at that stage of English one day!

Let's face it...academic jobs keep getting more demanding.

You have students to teach. Grant proposals to write. Faculty meetings to attend. Projects to administer. Emails to answer. Social media accounts to update. And even, in the occasional free minute, research to get done.

Let me help you improve your writing and make more of an impact with your research.

About Me

Hi, I'm Ellen!

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to make a difference in the world. After discovering the world of Russian and Eurasian Studies, I found my niche: supporting professors and researchers.

For the past 5 years, I've been helping authors in the field polish their writing for publication in books, journals, and blog posts. I've also handled every part of the journal publication process, from submission to publication. Along the way, I've helped revamp university courses, designed newsletters, and handled myriad administrative tasks for institutional and freelance clients.

As a graduate of the University of Cambridge (BA), the European University at St. Petersburg (IMARES), and the George Washington University (MIS), you can be confident that I have the skills and specialized knowledge of the field necessary to do the work—and do it extremely well.
