Whether your text needs a light polish or a major overhaul, I can help make it shine. For over 25 years, I have been creating online and print content that is not only clear, concise and correct, but also effective.

It's all about reaching your audience
Whether I'm editing an academic research paper or government report, rewriting website text for an association, or creating new marketing materials for a corporation or small business, my goal is simple: make clients happy by ensuring their message is heard.

I've worked with academics, researchers, authors, businesses, associations, not-for-profits, NGOs, and government agencies (I am listed on ProServices), and I've written and edited on a wide array of topics.

Here are a few of the things my clients say when they come to me:

    • I want my text to be written properly, with no embarrassing errors  
    • I would like to make sure our online content is easy for anyone to read and understand 
    • I need content that helps increase revenue and brings in new customers 
    • I need an outside perspective to help me craft a more targeted message

Content that connects
So, if you want to ensure that your text gets you the results you're looking for, let's talk.

For more details, you can view my reviews on Google and LinkedIn.
