I am a Certified Professional Coach who is passionate about helping people communicate their great ideas clearly and coherently. I have been editing technical manuals, theses, dissertations, and books for many years. I have a Master’s in English and taught university writing courses for 6 years online and on campus. Prior to that, I worked in IT analyzing software and writing a variety of technical documents. My experience also includes marketing and internal communications.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading (saw that coming, didn’t you), writing (and that too), traveling, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. I live in the sunny Southwest with my spouse and our dog, Pedro, who is a 12-pound Chihuahua-Min Pin mix.

“Angela di Gualco has the most amazing combination of life coaching, technical, and editing skills. She utilized all these skills when editing Sprouting Spiritual Growth: A Memoir and Guide to Spiritual Journaling for me in 2017.“
