An enduring passion for lifelong learning has propelled me from extended travel and academia (MA, sociology) through Toronto's book publishing industry (HarperCollins, Kids Can Press) to the delightfully engaging world of freelance editing. Graduate of the Banff Publishing Workshop (1995) and Ryerson's Certificate in Publishing program (in 1997, where, incidentally, I was the first ever to receive both the Marsh Jeanneret and Eve Orpen awards for academic excellence). Recent and current clients include Athabasca University, Edit Group Inc., and Worth Publishers. Conscientious, curious, and creative; experienced, energetic, and eloquent. Long projects especially welcome.
