ABOUT GOOD WORD
Some of My Story
As a meticulous proofreader, it's my job to help you turn in the cleanest transcripts possible.
As a person who loves both the written and spoken word, it's my pleasure!
In fact, I spent countless hours reading as a child and then dedicated four years to studying for my BA in English Literature. Well, let me be honest: most of the "studying" was reading and writing.
And once I had that ubiquitous English degree, I spent a lot of time trying to find work, which in turn led to a wide variety of jobs in interesting places: a hospital medical records department, an association for the mentally disabled, a jewelry store, a car dealership, and a credit card bank to name a few.
My experience became a mix of organizing, auditing, customer service, proofreading, and project management. I developed a strong interest in horticulture and earned two Certificates of Merit in Ornamental Plants from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. If you're ever in the area, do make sure to visit! It's a great place.
Along the way, I got married and had a child. That family became my focus for many years, and my son is now grown and soon to be leaving home. I prepared for that moment by completing a course called Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice. I earned a Certificate of Excellence and entered my current passion and proofreading business.

Turnaround times are established as part of the job confirmation. Feel free to contact me outside of business hours, but please be aware that I may not always be available to confirm a job right away due to differing time zones and family obligations.
