Primary contact: 


I am an editor, proofreader, writer and researcher with 15 years of experience, including at international organizations like the United Nations, the European Commission and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), where I ensured that documentation ranging from briefings and letters to published reports were written in impeccable, clear and compelling English. My unique experience has seen me working on topics like UN inspection and evaluation, sustainable development, staff-management relations, international food security cluster coordination, ballistic missile defence, disaster response, Japan-NATO cooperation and European Parliament committees.

With a master’s degree in social sciences with a specialization in international relations and a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and European studies, my knowledge of topics in international affairs, social sciences and the humanities are particularly strong, and I have wide-ranging interest in other fields like global and national defence, Canadian and EU politics, international development, philosophy, France and its culture, Nordic countries (especially Finland), nutrition, health and travel.

In addition to my other experience, I edited and proofread for a translator certified by the American Translators Association (ATA) and Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC), often working with scientific or technological topics. One of my strengths is handling texts that were translated from another language to English or written by someone whose mother tongue is not English (ESL writers). With excellent knowledge of French and experience in translating from French to English, I am particularly suited to working with texts that were originally written in French or by francophone authors.

I work on a freelance basis and can help you to edit and proofread any of your documents: academic theses, articles and essays, translated texts, letters and résumés, self-published books, blogs and websites, and reports and briefings in the fields of international affairs, business, social sciences, the humanities and science and technology.
