About Teresa Nolan Barensfeld

I have a BS in mathematics and computer science, summa cum laude. When I began editing and proofreading in 1991, I specialized in my college-major fields, then expanded into various subjects, including STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), the social sciences, economics, energy, fire science, political science, foreign relations, international relief, linguistics, and others. I have since added fact checking and project management to the services I offer. I love editing because I learn something new every day and help authors convey their ideas clearly and effectively. Before my editing career, I worked as a computer analyst for Morgan Stanley, a business manager for a woodworking company, a tax preparer, and a designer-sewist.

I am a long-time member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA); I am currently the co-leader of the EFA’s Upper Hudson chapter and have served as a member-at-large on the EFA Board of Trustees and a speaker at various chapter meetings. I am also a member of ACES (American Copy Editors Society). Outside of editing, I serve on my town’s Parks and Recreation Committee. In my spare time, I enjoy using my sewing and design skills to create quilts, apparel, and other textile arts.

The banner photos were taken in Yellowstone National Park, in the summer of 2019. This was part of a cross-country road trip my husband and I took, from eastern New York State to the Bay Area in California. (Photo by Deirdre Malfatto, who took a similar trip out West at around the same time.)
