I have extensive experience in plain language writing and editing. I mostly work with clients in the government, health, social services, Indigenous, labour, and environmental sectors. This doesn't mean I won't venture into other fields!

My skills include copy editing, stylistic, and substantive editing. I have edited five non-fiction books and hundreds of smaller publications like handbooks, reports, and fact sheets. Websites, too.

Since 1997, I have trained hundreds of professionals in plain language writing. 

With a degree in Journalism, and experience in media relations, I know how to meet deadlines. I have one professional goal: to deliver high quality products by connecting to you with integrity. I value the trust you invest in our relationship.

Let's talk about your project and make it happen.
