  • Full Profile

    Kelly has over 15 years of experience working with technical teams in the chemical, government, energy, financial, and manufacturing industries as a technical writer/technical editor. As a project assistant/technical editor for EHS Support, Kelly provides assistance with proofreading and editing client reports to ensure consistency and accuracy. She also assists in file management, finalizing documents and deliverables, and actively participates in strategic planning meetings.

    Kelly’s review is more than just a grammar check – she verifies that the text is consistent throughout the report and that the information in the text is consistent with the information presented in the supporting tables, figures, and attachments. Her logical approach, eye for detail, and “non-subject matter expert” perspective enables her to find discrepancies in the documentation that those embedded in the project may miss.
