About Tia Ross
A Lifelong Editor
I’ve been a writer since age 10 and a freelance and professional editor since high school when, at 16 years young, I was editing papers for fellow students and correspondence for United States military recruiters. Since then, I’ve polished millions of pages from all types of projects.
For thirty years, I have been providing both in-house and remote editorial support to lawyers, corporate executives, government agencies, small businesses, engineering firms, project managers, consultants, marketing gurus, professors, and authors. I edit and proofread business, legal, and technical documents, website and digital content, marketing copy, charts, print publications, business plans, annual reports, presentations, articles, blogs, social media posts, fiction, and nonfiction.
I have an AA in professional and technical writing, an AAS in computer science, a BS in information science, and a collection of certificates and certifications that include digital and computer forensics analysis, Lean Six Sigma, project management, ITIL, and database and software programming and development. Although I’m well-versed in all popular style manuals, my tools of choice include Chicago Manual of Style, Associated Press Style Manual, and The Blue Book.
As your editor, I believe my mission is to maintain your voice while enhancing your delivery, clarifying your ideas, eliminating redundancies, and ensuring consistency. What I won’t do is edit YOU out of YOUR own words.
