Editorial & Technical Expertise

Whether you're needing technical documentation, newsletters, presentations or a website created or overhauled in HTML and CSS or WordPress with SEO, e-mail, database, membership functionality and social media integration, to name a few, I am the non-technical small business owner's dream come true.

With 20+ years of entrepreneurial experience of my own plus proven technical know-how amplified by focused training at the associate and bachelor's degree levels in computer information technology, information science, and software, web and database programming, I am uniquely qualified to manage your business' technical tools so that you have more time and energy to do what you do best and focus on achieving your business goals.

I provide editorial and technical office, computer and website support for professional service solopreneurs and entrepreneurs. I take the stress, confusion and headaches out of tech by identifying and implementing the programs, apps and tools that enable my clients to streamline business operations and function more efficiently and profitably.

Along with being a total hotshot techie, I edit and proofread technical, legal, financial and business documents, web content, screenplays and manuscripts.

Want to know more about me? Got questions?

Get in touch! I look forward to working with you.


I love how Tia's choice for words are so accurate. It is absolutely amazing how I wrote something one way and she made it sound more professional and exciting to read! I appreciated how she never made me feel like "just a client." I felt like she was more of a partner due to her warm, inviting spirit and her dedication to my book's success. It was as if we knew each other personally.

Tia's in-depth knowledge of web design, WordPress, plugins and all of the other multiple types of software, tools and resources we could utilize to achieve my goals was astonishing, but her attention to detail and customer service was even more extraordinary. I would recommend Tia's services to anyone in need. In fact, I already have.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tia for several years as she has supported several initiatives for my company in general business consulting, project management, editing and technical writing. Tia's attention to detail, broad range of knowledge and experience that spans several business verticals has proven to be a great asset to me.

I hereby crown Tia Ross 'Grammar Queen.' Her copyediting expertise helped to increase the pace and improve the flow of my novel. In addition, her straight-to-the-point comments and inquiries, by-products of her acute attention to detail, helped to further enhance my manuscript.

As a beginning writer, I'd heard several scary stories about editing services and was a bit leery with whom I trusted with my work. I also wanted an editor that truly understood African-American writing. Tia proved to be a valuable resource for me, as well as a one-stop shop for other literary services, including help with finding an agent and information about publishing houses and printers. Her eagle eye has saved me much embarrassment! I can't believe the mistakes I missed even after reading my work myself numerous times before sending it to Tia.
