I can highly recommend Kymberly as a great editor of texts of any complexity. When it comes to medical manuscripts, she doesn’t only fix the grammatical errors, she also goes the extra mile to get into details to understand the contents of the text she is working with. Kymberly is very attentive to details and diligent in her work.
