I'm originally from Porto, but I'm currently living in Águeda, Portugal, with my husband and my dog, Blu. Some of my personal interests are photography, reading (crime and romance), crafts and travelling.
I decided to start my own business when I returned to Porto after living in Scotland for five years.
I found that some of my natural skills and previous professional experience would be a plus in a career in editing and proofreading. And it's also something that I enjoy doing.
I have a degree in Languages and Secretarial Skills (English–French).
After finishing my studies, I have worked for several years in private companies in office support roles, the last seven as a Senior Document Controller.
I have completed specialised training in Editing and Proofreading in recognised organizations: CIEP, PTC and Queen's University.
Basic Proofreading (PTC) – Merit
Proofreading Progress (CIEP) – 8.7/10
Mentoring Scheme (CIEP) – 10/10
Copy Editing I (Queen's University) – Pass
Copy Editing II – Stylistic Editing (Queen's University) – Pass
