Diverse Specializations

**Sensitivity Reading & Diversity Editing**

 Areas of Expertise

In my role as an authenticity reader and diversity editor, I've drawn from a range of personal, familial, and educational experiences. These aspects form the foundation of my insights into character backgrounds and narrative elements.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. If there's a character's background or narrative nuance you'd like to delve into, I'm here. Your story deserves precision and care, and I'm ready to ensure it sails smoothly through the vast space of storytelling.
