Profile

 I can provide clear and concise editing with an emphasis on academic writing of any kind, including term papers,theses,dissertations, research grants, applications for Ph.D. programs and any other academic training. I also have a lot of experience with government. I have worked at all three levels of government in Canada: federal, provincial and municipal. I have written and edited reports for all three levels of government. I also have experience in higher education. I have taught at both the community college and university level for 15 years. In addition, I taught a course online called "Research Literacy for Health Care Professionals."  For 20 years I ran my own consulting business as a health policy analyst. I  have a reputation as an excellent writer. Does an excellent writer make a good editor? So far, the feedback is excellent.
