Profile

Copy and content editor with 10 years of experience. I completed the publishing certification at Ryerson University in 2015 and continue to improve my crraft via workshops and online courses (including preparing for the EAC's certification next year).

I've worked with a variety of clients from first-time novelists to daily blog writers. I'm comfortable with AP, CP, APA, AMA, MLA, and Chicago style guides, as well as making project specific guides, in Canadian, American, British, and Australian English. I'm also proficient with Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe InDesign, and eBook coding.

Currently, I work for several magazines under BTC Media; academic, bussiness, and ESL clients sourced through Scribendi.com; and personal clients through my website, ScribeCat.ca. I love meeting new authors and helping them polish their writing to perfection whether it's for a full-length novel or a weekly website post.
