Katy Alderson Joins Intelligent Editing as Head of Relationships

Katy Alderson was recently named head of relationships at Intelligent Editing. With her background in professional writing and international business development, she will help grow the company’s professional proofreading software, PerfectIt.

“Living in rural Wales, a 90-minute commute from the nearest city, I decided three years ago to go freelance, which introduced me to some extraordinary clients and opportunities, including frequent travel to Canada, the United States and North Africa. This year coronavirus hit, and all my major clients put their projects on hold. That’s the downside of freelancing — it’s either feast or famine. However, the pandemic also meant that companies started advertising remote jobs. The commute no longer applied, and as a result, I found my new role at Intelligent Editing. Now I get to spend all day (virtually) with bid professionals. It’s been a roller coaster year for me, as it has been for many. I feel fortunate that the outcome is this amazing new opportunity.”
