Intro to Caitlin


Hi! I’m Caitlin Pyle. I help proofreaders earn extra income from anywhere in the world… even if you’re starting from scratch.

My passion for proofreading started when I studied abroad in Germany for a year in college and would help students proofread their college essays. I loved using my grammar talent to catch errors and help others turn their writing into masterpieces.

That love for proofreading continued to grow. I took my general proofreading skills to the next level when I got into proofreading transcripts for court reporters back in 2012. I was so good at spotting errors, I became known as “Eagle Eyes”. In fact, proofreading transcripts became my primary source of income in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Because I was so passionate about proofreading, I started
ProofreadAnywhere.com
as a blog back in 2014, and it’s exploded since then. I wanted to share my passion for proofreading with you—so you can grow your own freelance business like I did.

Through my proofreading career, I’ve been able to proofread literally anywhere, including a whole year I spent in South America! Living the life you want is possible for anyone willing to do what it takes to get there. I’ve never met anyone who said it wasn’t worth it!

Meet the Team

Ben Pyle

CEO

Ben is married to Caitlin, the grammar queen who started this whole movement. He's more of a numbers person than a word nerd, so he looks at things like spreadsheets and profit margins (fun!) to make sure Proofread Anywhere is healthy. He left his job as a financial aid officer to start his own work-from-home journey in 2014. When he's not helping Caitlin run Proofread Anywhere, he enjoys kettlebell training, kayaking, and tango dancing.

Elizabeth Wiegner

COO

Elizabeth’s love for reading started when her parents taught her how to read at three years old. It kicked off a love for books and grammar, which made finding Proofread Anywhere a dream come true. Her WAH career started when she was just twelve, and since then, she's done everything from teach piano, proofread, write, and manage virtual teams. When she's not working, she's hanging out with her husband (who also works at home!), weight lifting, or playing Eurogames.

After finding Proofread Anywhere, she started her proofreading business and quickly found that learning one skill can lead to so many fantastic opportunities. She’s since added copyediting and writing to her list of services. When she’s not working, she enjoys traveling, taking photos, and watching true crime shows with her boyfriend, Brian.

Maria currently lives in Dallas, TX, and is a freelance proofreader who always dreamed of getting paid to read. Her love of books and knack for catching errors is what drew her to Proofread Anywhere, first as a student-turned graduate and then as a virtual assistant. Her day job is in the accounting field which she also enjoys. Yes, she’s a words AND numbers geek! When she is not busy looking for typos or crunching numbers, Maria enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and spoiled kitties. For fun, she loves watching movies, of which book-to-screen movies are some of her favorites.

Rebecca Taft

Student Support Assistant/Grader

Read More

Rebecca is a recent transplant from Virginia to Colorado due to her husband’s pursuit of a PhD in music education. Previously living in a small town and struggling to find work, she was overjoyed to find Proofread Anywhere, which gave her the flexibility to work from home as a freelance proofreader. After enjoying the freedom of working from home, she began to work as a virtual assistant, using her administrative skills to support other business. Due to her work-at-home life, she was able to move across the country while still getting to work with all her wonderful clients. In her time off, you can find her reading (don’t even make her admit to how many books she owns or how long her to-read list is), binge-watching Netflix, spending time with her husband, or spending time with friends and family.

She has a bachelor's degree in Wildlife Conservation and Management, but once her first child came along, she knew that she was meant to be at home with him. With prior experience as a transcriptionist, she began working from home transcribing but was excited to branch out to proofreading once she happened upon Proofread Anywhere. In her spare time, she can be found hanging out with her family, knitting, crocheting, painting, sewing and attempting any other number of DIY projects.

Jen McOwen

Jen lives in northern Indiana with her husband and two young kids. A native of California, she loves to be outdoors any time the weather is even remotely decent, which makes working from home (and anywhere else!) a perfect fit for her. After years of working as an accountant, she discovered Proofread Anywhere and learned how to combine her keen attention to detail with her love of reading to now proofread books for authors. When she isn’t working, she also loves reading, crafting, dancing with her kids, playing games with her husband and family, or working with those in need in her community.
