During a 29-year career as PhD scientist/engineer working in a high-tech industry for the federal government, I enjoyed technical writing and reviewing colleagues’ reports.  With specialized training in editing, I now copy edit all types of manuscripts, particularly technical documents.  I recently became a Certified Copy Editor through Editors Canada.

With my diverse background in science and engineering (specifically in chemistry, nuclear engineering, and environmental sciences), I'm able to offer clients an understanding and critique of technical content that goes beyond the copy edit.

I have edited many journal papers, reports, memos, procedures, conference papers, evaluations, proposals, and summaries.

My editing services are through Rhodes Associates, a small engineering consulting firm. I would be happy to provide samples of my work.
