My name is Ilsa. I’m based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, and work with clients from across the UK, Europe and the United States.
Before starting as a freelance proofreader, copy-editor and copywriter in 2007, I worked for various blue-chip companies. My employment and training took me to different countries, and I achieved a business-management diploma from a German pharmaceutical company. I worked for a short time as a translator, for a lengthy time in customer services in a number of industries, and later as a quality manager for a leading charity.
Learning languages gave me a passion for learning how English works. Working in a number of positions and employment sectors gave me invaluable business and non-commercial experience. I now love helping businesses, non-profit organisations, publishers, freelance writers and students to create or improve just about any type of written content.
My working hours are flexible – I don’t mind working evenings or weekends, so can often help with tight deadlines.
Call to discuss your requirements and I’ll explain how I can help you. And if I can’t, I might well know someone who can.
Send an email via the contact page, and I’ll call or email you back as soon as I can.
Outside of work the things I love most are my husband, my children, travel, skiing and dogs.
