About Ali

I am the founder of Purple Ink Editing and am a knowledgeable, compassionate, and experienced editor and writer. I have a BA in English with an emphasis in Publishing from the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) from which I graduated with highest distinction. I then went on to receive my MA in Professional Communication with an emphasis in Technical Writing and Editing from Clemson University (CU), earning summa cum laude.

In addition to my formal education, I have dedicated the past six years to honing my professional editing skills through various work experiences, including internships at the Penn State Press and CU Digital Press and work experiences at PSU’s and CU’s writing centers, CU’s Spiro Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership, CU’s College of Engineering and Science Proposal Development Office, Avista Forum Journal, Linx Corp publishing company, and Business Horizons (a bimonthly journal from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business). Additionally, I have worked with countless academicians, professionals, and students.

Through these experiences, I have gained an in-depth knowledge of writing, effective composition tactics, rhetorical strategies, and English grammar, which I use to meet each client's unique needs. I have worked on a variety of projects, including books, technical proposals, dissertations/theses, academic journal articles, business letters, website content, student papers, brochures, newspaper articles, resumes, and more. 

In more recent years, I have had the opportunity to study visual communication, which has allowed me to go beyond just editing words to editing and designing aesthetically pleasing and rhetorically sound visuals. This unique skill set allows me to evaluate and create various documents and multi-media deliverables to ensure  they are as effective as possible. I have incorporated my graphic design skills in various academic and work-related projects, including formatting a monograph book, designing a book cover, creating various brochures, constructing websites, and more.
