About Berry Proofreading and Copyediting

Paula Gilfillan, owner of Berry Consulting, has a BSc in Occupational Hygiene and an MSc in Earth Resource and Environmental Management. She worked for the UK civil service in occupational health research, and then in environmental science strategy and policy for 22 years, before becoming a freelance proofreader, copyeditor, technical writer and copywriter. She was the subeditor of the journal ‘environmental SCIENTIST‘ from 2016-2018.

In her spare time, she is a published creative writer of children’s poetry and stories, and a member of Lockerbie Writers; she is just in the painful process of writing her first young adult novel!
