Profile

I have 12 years of editing, writing, and desktop publishing experience and have worked on a variety of projects for a range of audiences. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Linguistics/Rhetoric and Communications from the University of Winnipeg, as well as a diploma in Creative Communications (majored in journalism) from Red River College. 

Past projects have included television scripts, marketing materials, small newspapers, magazines, trade publications, research reports, proposals, business plans, web content, product packaging and labelling, technical and how-to manuals, and business correspondence. 

I work collaboratively with clients, ensuring I ask the right questions and understand their needs so that they receive the final product they're expecting. I offer reasonable rates and fast turnaround, as well as flexible availability. 

I enjoy learning about new subjects and taking on new projects, and am happy to edit, write, and design just about anything I can get my hands on!
