Thanks for considering Arrow Editing! If you're an academic, business, or professional writer, I can help you communicate your key message clearly and concisely to the readers you most want to reach.

Completing Simon Fraser University's Editing Certificate in June 2022 and holding a PhD in communications, I have extensive experience working with post-secondary and professional writers across disciplines. My recent editing projects include academic and research-based books, dissertations and theses, articles, funding proposals, business letters and brochures, PPT slides, posters, blogs--and even tweets. I also offer coaching and consultation for writers in the public and private sectors.

My approach to working with writers is collaborative and highly organized. I not only respect deadlines but often submit edits a bit early. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
