Siemens Editorial Services

Calgary, AB T2N 4S6


I am a professional communicator with 14 years of experience editing and writing a variety of content, including: books, articles, academic materials, reports, manuals, policies and procedures, presentations, marketing and website copy, project plans, proposals, course materials, newsletters and more.

I edit subject matter in many areas, and have experience in business, engineering, tourism and recreation, municipal planning, construction, geoscience, oil and gas, information technology, software, health and safety, psychology, education, and gardening and horticulture.

I'm also an indexer, with experience in periodical and online indexes.

My business degree is from University of Calgary and I earned certificates in both professional editing and technical writing at Mount Royal University. I completed formal indexing training through UC Berkeley Extension and Graduate School USA.

I love working with words and helping writers make their work shine. Clients value my concise edits and quick turnaround of their projects. I look forward to helping you communicate your message clearly and effectively!
