Jessica was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2001, she and her husband immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Los Angeles, where she worked as a Traffic Manager and proofreader for a non-profit ad agency.
Later that same year, her love for reading, exceptional command of the nuances of the English language, and meticulous attention to detail spurred her decision to start her own copyediting and proofreading business.
Since then Jessica has edited nearly 160 book manuscripts, as well as proposals, brochures, medical courses, articles, print ads, screenplays and horoscopes.
Jessica is familiar with both U.S. and U.K. spelling and moves seamlessly between them.
To sharpen her English skills Jessica loves to play scrabble and do crosswords.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and children.
