Targeted writing and editing in environmental and agricultural sciences.

About Joy Drohan

I’ve been lightening the loads of clients in environmental and agricultural sciences with targeted, award-winning writing and editing for more than 20 years. I have an M.S. in Environmental Pollution Control from Penn State University.

Other relevant experience:

  • Writer/editor for what is now Penn State Institutes of Energy and Environment
  • Copy editor for a government services contractor for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • Forestry extension associate for University of Maryland Cooperative Extension

I typically work with the Chicago Manual of Style, but I also use APA style.
