About Me

Stefany Knight, Knight Editing
Stefany Knight, Knight Editing

My desire to improve the quality of written material is something I feel very strongly about, so I decided to become a freelance proofreader/copyeditor.

Having spent many years working in the public sector, my administrative career led me to gaining a lot of proofreading experience. I also spent many years working as a temp, and so undertook a wide range of proofreading/editing tasks in a wide range of organisations.

My experience includes working for five years in the Department of Public Health within a medical school environment, where I was called upon frequently to proofread course material for students.

In a previous government role I was frequently called upon to proofread website copy.
