Etobicoke, ON


As an experienced editor and proofreader of academic and fictional materials, I have developed an astute eye in picking out common literary errors, as well as providing counsel to numerous projects. While my expertise in fictional materials expand across genres like fantasy to romantic drama primarily aimed for young adults; within the academic realm, I have provided copy editing, developmental and structural assistance to essays belonging to multiple subjects in the field of humanities.

Even though my interests primarily lie in writing and editing manuscripts for YA novels, I also prioritize topics such as gender equality, and a fair and correct representation of LGBTQ+ and diverse people regardless of the subject matter.

I am a recent graduate from University of Toronto, and hold a BA in English. I am also currently pursuing a Creative Writing Certificate from the Continuing Studies at University of Toronto.
