About DJ

Black woman with natural hair with smile and open expression

Hi, I’m Dana, a licensed educator and former scientist who switched professional gears twelve years ago. Actually, it’s more like, I added gears. Editing gears.

I did it for love. I’m enthralled with letters and symbols and the impressive job they do conveying meaning—information, images, moods—all that and more. It’s truly incredible.

Sometimes my work involves education or science, or both. Sometimes it involves neither. I specialize in nonfiction, particularly educational materials, scholarly works, and nonprofit reports and articles.

When I’m not editing and writing, I’m reading from a perpetual stack of books, solving cryptic crosswords, practicing fiber crafts, and wandering through thrift shops.
