My name is Christina Petrides. Not that long ago I packed up my high heels and gave up my London transport network travelcard to work as a freelancer.
Having had enough of sitting in an office I much prefer working in more inspirational environments and use any spare time I have seeing more of the world.
I have been working in the environmental and marketing sectors for nearly two decades. I am applying the skills and experience I have accumulated through this work to the field of professional proofreading and copywriting, helping others to benefit from the services of an experienced writer and reviewer.
During my career my work has included drafting, copyediting, and technical review of over 300 environmental reports, typically requiring compliance with international standards or UK planning regulations. I have also written copy for and edited countless websites ranging from beauty and therapy services, to florists, yoga, construction services, housing developments and everything in between. My marketing skills include copywriting, copyediting and proofreading for web and print publications. I have proofread numerous corporate communications materials, academic papers for publication, student dissertations and theses at all levels, and helped people get their dream job by reviewing CVs and job applications.
I have completed extensive proofreading training through the UK's Publishing Qualifications Board, and hold an MBA as well as environmental BSc (Hons) and MSc qualifications. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment.
