Dedicated to helping you impress your audience with error-free writing

I’m Jo-Ann, a lover of words and how their presentation impacts the reader. I can’t help myself when I see anything written: books, signs, websites, television ads, magazine articles, notes, T-shirts.  I automatically give it a critical eye for errors, some of which can completely change the message being presented. 

Friends asked me to proofread their academic papers and business communications. Soon my job description at work was revised to include proofreading all office documents and reports, website content, and marketing materials.

To hone my skills, I took a course in technical editing and completed a course dedicated to proofreading to augment over 20 years of experience.

When I am not poring over words, I enjoy aerobic walking, reading mysteries, doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and spending time with family. I am also an active community volunteer.

I highly recommend Ms. Jo-Ann Raines's professional proofreading service. Ms. Raines provides thoughtful critical critiques, excellent recommendations and superb edits. These important factors were responsible for an excellent final draft of my doctoral dissertation. Ms. Raines's service is also very efficient in that she adheres to all timelines and deadline dates. I rank her service as 5 out of 5 stars!
