Former Marketing Services Co-ordinator for cottages4you, the UK’s leading provider of holiday cottages. Distinction for proofreading awarded by the Publishing Training Centre for Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning.

I am a natural, meticulous and highly motivated proofreader, always calm under pressure. I have a marketing and project management background in holiday cottages and tourism in the UK and France. I was selected to co-ordinate the production of every piece of marketing for cottages4you, and more importantly to scrutinise, proofread and sign off all material, namely brochures, direct mail, emails, advertisements and the website. My strong depth of experience has equipped me excellently to proofread any number of media and subject fields.

I am proficient in proofreading blind or against copy, and professionally trained to use BSI proofreading symbols, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for PDFs and Track Changes in Word.

My degree and experience also make me an ideal choice for proofreading copy translated from French.
