Profile

As an editor, I offer a precise eye for detail. As a writer, I use plain English with a creative edge. My goal is to make documents short and snappy, readable and read. As an instructional designer, I develop materials for a wide range of topics...instructional designers ask all the stupid questions, thus making your materials foolproof. Living overseas (England, Japan, Mauritania, Cambodia) has given me a broad perspective and experienced viewpoint.

BA (English Literature), U of Guelph, ON; BEd (Library Science), U of Regina, SK; MEd (Instructional Technology), U of Alberta. Over 30 years as writer, instructional designer, and editor.
