About Me

Bobbi

Adderton

As a veteran of the advertising industry, I know how important timeliness and accuracy are to your projects. Fast, accurate turnaround is my specialty.

 

 

A dedicated “errorist,” I have 35+ years of experience in proofreading and editing for advertising agencies, book authors, printers, and the corporate communications department of a national hospital alliance. In addition, I also proofread and edit websites and mobile apps.

Proficient with the Associated Press (AP) Stylebook, I once led a team who 

created an in-house style guide based on AP style that is still used today. I am also well versed in The Chicago Manual of Style. Like an Oxford comma? I’ve got you covered.

I am a graduate of the Professional Sequence in Editing from U.C. Berkeley and hold a bachelor’s in English from East Carolina University.

In addition,  I am an N.C.C.P. (North Carolina Certified Paralegal) and attend numerous seminars and webinars yearly to keep up with current editing trends.
