The “Who” of Penrose Professional Services

Hi there! I’m Anisa Bear.

I’m pretty outdoorsy and if you only knew me for a hot minute, you’d already know that I’m crazy about the pup at the top of the page. His name’s Oakum, and if you’re curious you can learn more about him in my blog.

I’ve been copy editing and proofreading since college. I had a knack for seeemlessly blending everyone’s writing in team projects, making the final document read like it was written by one brilliant author. Continuing to work with students, I’ve edited papers for diverse subjects from accounting to nursing.

In my career, I’ve improved all sorts of professional documents across many different industries. From technical reports to marketing materials, procedures to business proposals, I’ve made them sound great and create a lasting impression.

In 2016, I discovered plain language writing and editng and began focusing on making documents and websites easy for everyone to understand. I aim to turn complex ideas into simple, clear language that anyone can grasp effortlessly the first time they read it.

I’m passionate about what I do, and my goal is to keep making a positive impact through my copy editing, proofreading and plain language skills.

Are you ready? Let’s do this!
