I’m excited to pursue the next phase in life as an editor. While laboratory work can be rewarding and exhilarating it can also make you feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day– Oh goody more of Test X or Test Y prep today.
While I found growing pancreatic islet cells to be personally rewarding I have discovered that aiding a writer in achieving their vision is extremely satisfying. I have been schooled in writing for the sciences and can therefore assist with questions of science and proper laboratory vernacular.
After almost two decades of bench work I have acquired a wide range of laboratory skills. From culturing human islet cells and running an RT-PCR program, to validating botanical identity through HPTLC or screening natural remedies for heavy metals or pesticide contamination I have practical knowledge and experience in biology, chemistry, physics, and geology.
Science knowledge that I will draw upon as your editor. I will approach each project with the same attention to detail required in any laboratory environment. Helping the aspiring author fulfill their dream is as exciting for me as extracting and amplifying DNA– and certainly less redundant than lab work.
