Hi, I'm Lisa

And I'm here to save the word!

The Hygienics

  1.  I’m from New Zealand – yes, Middle Earth! We’re known for Hobbits, sheep, and a rather special flightless bird.
  2. Advertising media is my current profession (7+ years) and I’ve had the pleasure of working on some great clients; including GM, Nestlé, Sony Pictures (just a few among many).
  3. I’m a keen baker. Cupcakes have become a specialty and I frequently receive requests from family and friends.
  4. I have a beautiful dog – Jaco. He’s a Boxer/Border Collie/Huntaway cross and is named after a late (yet incredible) bassist.
  5. I was very lucky to learn several instruments as a child; as a result I’m intensely passionate about music. MJ forever!
  6. My love of copy editing is ingrained (Dad’s an ex-copywriter) and I was inspired by a close friend to share my ‘red-penning’ with the world. So… hello, World!

 

The Down and Dirty

Why am I here?

I want to educate people on the importance of copy editing, hone my skills as a copy editor, unearth the best practices for web-based writing, and (eventually) turn my passion into a full-time career.
