Lucy White
Interim Executive Director


Michelle Ou
Senior Communications Manager
I joined the national office staff in 2005 after copywriting, editing and website development gigs in marketing, finance, health, sports and music. As Editors Canada's communications manager, I develop national marketing strategies to raise the profile of the editing profession, and for member acquisition and retention. I'm also the main voice behind Editors Canada's national social media presence, tweeting links to the articles you might find interesting and the jokes that will definitely make you groan. When I'm not donning the Editors Canada sandwich board, I'm supporting independent, underground music and can be found at concerts in Toronto and abroad.



Caitlin Stewart
Training and Development Manager
I joined the office as a part-time conference coordinator to help with the 2015 international conference in Toronto, and I became full-time member of the team in 2016. My responsibilities include coordinating the annual conference and our new webinars program, and supporting our publications committee. Before joining Editors Canada, I worked for several years in a book store and as a freelance editor.

Dee Noble
Branch Coordinator
A Vancouver-based freelance technical writer, copy editor, proofreader and researcher, I enjoy working with all forms of non-fiction. And being active in Editors Canada affords me the pleasant company of like-minded professionals. What else do I do for fun? Well, leisure time is limited as I'm also a library technician, but walking, reading, bird watching, and trying out new recipes on family and friends are high on my list of preferred pastimes.


Editors Quebec/Atlantic Canada
Karen Schell
Branch Administrator
I have been the branch administrator for the Quebec/Atlantic Canada branch (QAC) of Editors Canada since 2003. It has been a rewarding experience watching and helping the wonderful volunteers and executive members develop branch activities and services! I am not an editor so when I am not doing my part-time job with QAC, I work at the Pointe-Claire Aquatic Centre as the swim club administrator, swimming instructor, receptionist and aquatic trainer. Cycling, swimming competitively, running, photography and three nearly grown children keep me busy during my free time.
