I am a certified editor, a published author, and a seasoned writer with over 30 years of professional research, writing, and document production experience.
I edit a variety of work across a broad range of topics and disciplines—typically in the social sciences, humanities, health sciences, education, and First Nations studies. My clients are diverse—in background, language fluency, education, and occupation. I am accustomed to working with government agencies, academics, and students, and I’m familiar with the complex ethical terrain of editing theses and dissertations in keeping with university guidelines.
Editing: proofreading; copy editing; stylistic, substantive, and structural editing; style guide compliance.
