About Us – Company History
Precision Science Editing was established by Anne Altor and Edward LaPlante.
Anne Altor, PhD, PWS
Dr. Altor is an environmental scientist who worked in consulting and academia prior to pursuing her interest in editing full time. While conducting peer reviews for scientific journals, she realized that most writers would benefit from editorial assistance, as she herself benefited from external reviews of her writing. Altor developed an interest in editing through helping scientists whose first language was not English to refine their manuscripts. After working as a freelance editor for several other companies, Dr. Altor began the scientific editing company “Write On! Editing Services” in 2012. The name was changed to Precision Science Editing in 2013. You can read more about her qualifications here.
Ed LaPlante, BS
Mr. LaPlante began working in information technology in 1988. He has worked as a technical writer, software applications programmer, software designer, and project manager in developing relational database applications and business reporting systems. As a consultant, Mr. LaPlante performed technical editing and developed process-improvement applications for the agroscience, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries, and for the legal field. Since 2005, his work has focused on business development, customer service, and quality improvement.
