Kristi Robison, Proofreader
Kristi Robison has more than 20 years of copyediting and proofreading experience, including training new proofreaders and maintaining in-house style guides. While working at a large Austin, Texas-based advertising agency she worked with clients in the airline, healthcare, hospitality, finance, and government industries. However, she began life as a high school teacher (German and English) and has recently returned to the academic world as an assistant teacher at an elementary school.
In addition, she might say, “What haven’t I done?” because she also edited books for a company in California, worked as a writing editor for Texas standardized tests, and has kept her hand in marketing proofreading over the years, most notably with real estate clients and the U.S. Money Reserve. Additionally, for one year, she had the great pleasure and unique experience of being a player support assistant for a (now defunct) video game created by the Flickr founders—now the creators/owners of Slack Industries, a business communications tool used by numerous companies.
Besides joining Blu Pagoda to work on proofreading projects, right now Kristi works at the elementary school, rates SAT essays and supervises other raters, tutors online, and freelance proofreads now and then. Somewhere in there she finds time to raise her two children and relax with videogames, reading, and anime.
