Profile

My job as an editor is always to help writers communicate clearly and effectively.

I have an M.A. in English literature, a background in writing instruction, and over 15 years of professional in-house and freelance editing experience. I edit all kinds of nonfiction content, including academic and educational materials, conference proceedings, and business materials. I am particularly interested in creative nonfiction.

Since 1998, I have specialized in online and distance learning. I provide substantive and copy editing services to post-secondary, professional, and open learning organizations. I also work as an online writing tutor, where I coach students through discrete stages of the writing process: planning and outlining, drafting, and revising. I work extensively with ESL writers as an editor and as a writing coach.
