About Me

Hi! I’m Monica. I’m the proofreader here at

Blue Pen Proofreading

I’m the person that texts in complete sentences and wants to correct everyone’s grammar. Yep, the annoying one. Those qualities do come in handy though. They make for a good proofreader! 

I’ve always been good at proofreading, but I recently took a course to brush up on my skills. 

I also review books online! I post my reviews on:


(If you’re an author and would like me to proofread and review your book, please let me know! There is a $5 discount on proofreading if I review your book.)

I have a degree in elementary education, and I taught first grade. I had my first baby 16 years ago and have been a stay-at-home mom since then. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and we have four children (16, 14, 12, 9).  I have helped out at my kids’ school by subbing, being a reading aide, and being in charge of the end-of-year testing.   

I love to read and write, and have fun marking up my kids’ essays and papers.
