Need an enthusiastic editor?

I will help you connect with your readers through direct and accessible writing.

Easy to work with, precise, and unashamedly enthusiastic about words, I will perfect your work. I am a professional who’s worked in nonprofits and academic publishing for decades, with enough credentials to know what matters and experience to know what doesn’t.

Reach all your readers: I specialize in explaining complex ideas clearly and ensuring accessibility for readers with disabilities. I’m a tech wiz: tell me how you want your information to look and I’ll make it happen.

My specialties are academic editing and health-care communications. I particularly enjoy working with students on their theses and dissertations. I also create and edit corporate documents – policies and reports – that people actually read and use. See the services section for more information and a list of my other projects.

I’m an active member of Editors Canada.
