I spearheaded and founded the Paris Unlocked site in 2016 as a site for culturally curious travelers. Today, the site garners over 50,000 unique visitors a month and a social media and newsletter audience of over 14,000 people. It has captured numerous valuable rankings in Google search, with many key features ranked in the top 5.
Since 2019, I have served as a copy editor and editorial coordinator for several issues of Museum International (International Council of Museums/ICOM).

“I knew I wanted to hire a bilingual copyeditor, more specifically, someone who would be able to spot errors in the numerous French names, titles, and quotations that appear in my book manuscript. Courtney far exceeded my expectations. She worked efficiently and kept in regular communication during the entire process. Her corrections were necessary and smart. It was a truly a pleasure working with her.”
