Profile

Communicating effectively is at the centre of success. As an experienced Technical & Copy Editor, Proofreader, and Technical Writer, I understand this very well.

I graduated from the University of Ottawa with an Honours BA with a double major in English Literature and Communications (specialization in Media Studies) and possess five years of experience working as a Technical Writer and Editor with the Government of Canada. I have a flair for maintaing a consistent voice, and take great pride in my hawk-eye abilities. I am trained in The Canadian Style English, Plain Language, and The Canada Content Style Guide. 

I am equipped with extensive experience writing and editing guidelines and procedural manuals, and a talent for simplifying complex information for readers. As a writer of business reports, annual committee blueprints, memos, bulletins and more, I bring this knowledge to my editing.

I am a writer and editor that strives for virtuosity. With a client-based approach to editing, I always aim to achieve your vision and creative goals!
