Profile

I am a seasoned editor with 10+ years of experience and a client list that includes digital publications from a broad range of areas. I specialize in copy editing and line editing but am equally adept at content editing, stylistic editing, and substantive editing. I am dedicated to producing high-quality work, and I am known for establishing solid professional relationships with my clients as well as for respecting an author’s voice while taking it to the next level.

I thrive on variety and always enjoy working on material from which I can learn something new — be it from a news outlet, a lifestyle magazine, or the next bestseller cookbook — but I have a soft spot for any publication that focuses on animal welfare or environment protection and conservation.

Here’s a little of what some of my clients have said about me and my work, but if you'd like to see the full picture, you can visit my profile on LinkedIn. If you have a project you'd like my help with, then please reach out to me here at Editors Canada srychel@editors.ca.

Sandra was very detail-oriented, professional and became a go-to copy editor for documents, video captions and other items that fell outside of the normal scope of her duties. We knew we could count on her to quickly turn pieces around while still providing the same level of accuracy.

— Director of Content Operations

Sandra is an incredibly competent, dedicated, and detail-oriented editor who is a true pleasure to work with. She is always someone you can depend on. … She takes pride in her work, as seen in her meticulous focus as a copy editor, and she is a team player who shows a steadfast commitment to the organization and to her colleagues. … I highly recommend Sandra and believe she would be the perfect person to turn to for any editing work.

— Editor-in-chief

Sandra’s meticulousness, perfectionism, professionalism, and team-mindedness is incredibly rare. … I can honestly say that Sandra is by far the best copy editor or copy chief we have ever had. Working with someone so meticulous and dedicated to her work is such a blessing, and any company would be lucky to work with her.

— Managing Editor

Sandra not only was pleasurable to work with, but displayed a keen editor's eye and enthusiasm for the written word. Sandra is a stickler for detail, and can go through material with the finest of fine tooth combs, all while using a collaborative rather than a didactic approach with the writer. Her skill set and professional attitude add value to any publication or content development effort. Her work improves clarity, enforces style and eliminates those errors that you would really rather spot before content is distributed.
