Profile

I am both a seasoned editor and an award-winning writer. As an editor, I have corrected, interpreted and rewritten thousands of pages of English text, often written by subject-matter experts whose first language is not English. As a writer, I contribute to various consumer, trade and corporate publications. I am also the editor and co-author of the book, The View from here: Women of vision: Perspectives on success. In addition, I develop and deliver customized business writing workshops for employees of organizations in various sectors. I also teach English as a Second Language (ESL).

My company, The Mallard Group, provides top-flight marketing communications services for the private, government and not-for-profit sectors. Our award-winning teams and fresh ideas help clients present and communicate their messages clearly and effectively.
