Proofreading, Editing, and Social Media Consulting
As a career editor/copyeditor/proofreader with my own business, imPROOF, I have helped numerous writers and companies with their projects, and I would be delighted to work for you.
Due to my interest in social media and my success with Twitter (23,500+ followers) and Facebook (5,000+ friends and fans) to promote my blog — Dagmar’s Home — I also work as a social media consultant. My Klout score is 61.
Hiring a proofreader, editor, or social media consultant will ensure that you present yourself professionally. It’s an investment, not an expense, and gives you the edge you need in today’s competitive market.

Don’t think you need or want a social media presence? Think again!
As a proofreader, I “improof” my client’s common spelling, grammar, and formatting mistakes. When editing, I offer insight with empathy and humor, opening up new perspectives and possibilities. Straightforward but very compassionate, my non-judgmental personality gently urges you to move forward by attaining focus and accountability to make your writing the best it can be.
I have a love for language and love what I do best: proofreading, writing, and editing. With an eye for layout and armed with a degree in advertising, I worked as an Advertising/Marketing Specialist. While attending UCLA, I worked as a Bruin Staff Copyeditor and honed my excellent editing skills, and after receiving my B.A. in English, I was a Subtitle Editor for over six years.
Increasingly more in demand as a freelancer, I took the leap into self-employment when I started my own proofreading and editing service, imPROOF. After teaching myself how to use Worpress and social media tools to promote my own blog, I’m now also in demand as a social media consultant, brand ambassador, Twitter party host, and more.
Honors and Memberships:
- Valedictorian, Pasadena City College, 1998 (8 scholarships)
- Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society member, UCLA
- I was an Editorial Freelance Association member for years
My clients include many writers (scripts, fiction, and nonfiction), Amgen, Honda/Acura, magazines, publishers, advertising agencies, bloggers, and small business owners.
What satisfied customers are saying:
“I will add, as a very satisfied customer, that Dagmar is the consummate professional. Being new to this business, I was lost, but she took the time to help me get my book ready. She’s getting the sequel if she can fit it into her schedule!” – Robert Godfrey
Good writing deserves proofreading and editing — bad writing demands it!
