Profile

As a Certified Professional Editor, I specialize in education, mental health, and health care. I provide a full range of editing services, including rewriting, revising, and reorganizing; ensuring a consistent and appropriate point of view and flow; and correcting errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, and usage. I am also skilled at ensuring that documents created by multiple authors are clear and consistent. My goal is to ensure that your message is communicated clearly, accurately, and concisely. I am adaptable, easy to work with, and have a good sense of humour.

With over 16 years of exprience, I have worked with a wide range of publishers, self-published authors, not-for-profit organizations, and government agencies. I have edited, written, and re-written a wide range of documents, including textbooks, teachers' guides, workbooks, and assessments at all levels (elementary to university); online courses; non-fiction books; manuals; self-published books; surveys; research reports; journal articles; and websites.I have also written three children's craft books.

Other areas of experience include organizational development, social sciences, research, and business management.
