2018 Lee D'anjou Volunteer of the Year

I help people communicate their ideas clearly. I work with writers in academia, government, nonprofits, and business to help them save time, save money, reduce errors, improve clarity, and make sure their important work appears at its best.

Proven excellence: Certified Professional Editor (CPE, Editors Canada); certified diplomate Editor in the Life Sciences (ELS[D], Board of Editors in the Life Sciences).

Insightful analysis: I can work with you to identify the best ways to ensure that your message is clear, consistent and correct.

Extensive background in health and medical editing: I have edited texts in nearly every subject area (from neurology to podiatry) and every discipline (from specialist and family physicians to nurses and allied health professionals)

Range of editorial skills: Structural editing, stylistic editing, rewriting, copy editing, proofreading, production editing, graph and table editing, or a combination of these, depending on your needs.
