Profile

I am an experienced editor specializing in general arts and humanities, social sciences, business communications, and trade fiction/non-fiction. I work with traditionally published and independent authors, academic writers, students, and business professionals who are looking for help to make their writing shine. 

I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Master of Arts in Near Eastern Civilizations. I also hold a publishing certificate from Ryerson University, where I received training in copy editing, substantive/stylistic editing, proofreading, and book indexing. With my diverse background and experience, I know how to make your work stand out while also helping you preserve your voice and writing style. 

During my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, travelling, and chasing around my feisty toddler.

What my clients say 

"After having submitted one story to three editors, I choose Olga because she questioned my writing and made suggestions. Her detailed approach helped to improve clarity." C.R. Lemos, Manager at Preservation House​

"Olga’s editing style is not only helpful but educational. Her detailed insights and thorough explanations have helped make my website content better than it originally was. She is one of the most dedicated to her work people I have ever worked with, and it is evident in her amazing work." Natalia D., Business Owner

"As part of the ASOR Cultural Heritage Initiatives, which is an international collaboration designed to document, protect, and preserve the cultural heritage of war-torn Syria and northern Iraq, Olga has done terrific work creating and maintaining a subject index of our weekly reports.  Olga's ability to organize an abundance of information on the complex issues taking place in Syria and Northen Iraq has allowed ASOR to post her index on our project website (http://www.asor-syrianheritage.org/), which has become an important resource for interested scholars, media members, and the public."Jared Koller, CHI Website & Database Coordinator
