Dr. Vonda is a seasoned editing pro, stretching all the way back to her undergrad days, when classmates would ask her to proof their papers.

You benefit from her 10 years as a college instructor (history and geography) and administrator (Academic Support—lots of editing!) and over four years as a journalist, during which time she proofread and edited other reporters’ stories and the pages as they were laid out, wrote a weekly column and won an AP award for non-deadline reporting.

Dr. Vonda’s undergrad and graduate degrees are in history and her Ph.D. is in geography.  Her editing skills run the gamut from children’s books to technical papers.

As a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator and president of a small nonprofit wildlife rehab center, when she’s not editing Dr. Vonda is engaged in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of North American native wildlife.
