About Trina

You know the feeling – something was overlooked after all the time you spent on a piece. It happens to the best of us! And reprinting is costly.

I am a freelance copyeditor and proofreader in the Cleveland area. My style is to redraft and improve, rather than compose. At Wyse Advertising, and in my 25 years’ experience, I saw copy go from an idea, to draft, redraft, edit, re-edit, final edits and a proof. Looking for ways to improve writing and attaining accuracy became second nature.

“Be certain of everything; overlook nothing.”

My experience includes working for top executives at Wyse Advertising, Zaremba Corporation, Calfee, Halter & Griswold, LLP; OfficeMax, and The Cleveland Orchestra. As years passed, I became the go-to person on whom others relied for “fresh eyes.” Copyediting and proofreading were a large portion of my responsibility: brochures, corporate reports, letters to an organization, newsletters, presentations, press releases, and similar printed material.

For annual meetings, executives and managers submitted their individual presentations. My challenge was to create one, cohesive and consistent corporate presentation. Editing was critical in developing a style of writing and consistent voice to please all involved.

Needing a change from corporate, I operated a dog services business – my lifelong passion. But, I missed working with words and started Fresh Eyes Reading.

Having a keen eye for editing and proofreading includes clear writing, consistency, excellent grammar, formatting, proper word usage, punctuation, and style. For fresh eyes on your writing and to find out how to avoid those, “Oh no!” moments, please contact me below.
