About Passion for Proof

Welcome to Passion for Proof

Hi! I'm Sue Breen, Dip Edit, founder of Passion for Proof, and I'm happy that you're here.


A native English speaker, I started Passion for Proof in 2018 after graduating with distinction with a Diploma in Proofreading and Copy Editing from the New Zealand Institute of Business Studies.

I've always been passionate about good grammar and spelling. I've worked in a corporate environment for over thirty years in roles that benefit – sometimes depend on – good attention to detail and the ability to produce professional documentation.


In 2017 the penny finally dropped – I should become a fully qualified Proofreader and use my passion and skills to help others produce professional documents too.

On a more personal note, I'm British – I spent my childhood in Scotland and most of my adult life in England before moving to New Zealand with my family, where we have spent the past 11 years. Passionate about proofreading, I also love living by the coast and spending time with my family, friends and dogs.

I love reviewing written work in all forms and would love to help you with yours! If you have a piece of written content you would like polished then please get in touch.


With one of my other passions... dogs!
