Samantha Acker is an Ottawa-based copy editor and proofreader. Her love of revising English first started in University, when she began correcting her friends’ assignments. After graduation, she began her career in newspapers and has worked at five (in the U.S. & Canada). While she was a stay-at-home mom for eight years, she was able to freelance and work on many different copy editing projects. Now, she still freelances and, so far, has an official editing credit in three out of the 11 published books she has edited.
