Barbie Carpenter

Barbie Carpenter has more than a decade of professional writing and editing experience. Before launching Carpenter Document Consulting in 2008, Barbie worked as a syndicate newspaper editor, nationally syndicated columnist, and technical writer and editor for defense clients.

As a professional editor, Barbie has worked with hundreds of graduate students at dozens of schools on their theses, capstone projects, and dissertations. These long-term collaborations afford students the opportunity to have their projects edited from the proposal stage through the post-defense revision, ensuring content is grammatically sound and appropriately formatted.

Barbie also works with job seekers to craft convincing cover letters, curriculum vitaes, and resumes. She has several long-term relationships with small business owners and university departments, editing online courseware, marketing and communications pieces, website text, and more.

In addition to comprehensive editing services, Carpenter Document Consulting provides web writing services as well. Barbie has produced thousands of pages of content for the web, with a focus on content marketing and product-description writing for clients from around the world.
