Profile

I specialize in working with writers whose first language is not English  (academics or business and organization professionals) editing documents written in English or translated into English. I am also the editor of BCAQc Connected, published by Breast Cancer Action Quebec. Allow me to guide you through your darkest writing quandary into the illuminating elegance of clear, concise language.

I received a master’s degree in library science from McGill University, incorporating an additional year of study in the areas of art and architectural history and children's literature. My undergraduate studies were in the liberal arts and I received a BA in Art Education. I am interested in a wide range of topics including the environment and health issues, human rights and social justice, politics, economics, education, and the arts.

I work on a freelance basis—primarily as a content editor—and charge by the hour. Recommendations and further information are available on my website:  www.redpenciledediting.com. I receive documents electronically and maintain communication with clients by email or phone throughout the editing process. My goal is always to improve the final draft while maintaining the original meaning and voice of the author.
