  • At its best, communication is clear and concise without sacrificing creativity. I earned high honours from the University of Saskatchewan for a B.A. Honours in English with a minor in French, and I am well on my way to completing the Editing Certificate from Simon Fraser University. I am currently employed as a freelance editor, writer and proofreader in Saskatoon and as the copy editor for the Sheaf at the U of S. I have experience translating between French and English as well. My keen eye for detail can help you clean up your writing, catch mistakes and generally polish your written communications.
