Math, math, and more math is what I edit. Elementary, high school, and college mathematics textbooks: I edit them all, at all stages of the process.

Vast experience editing all levels of el-hi mathematics texts; extensive experience copy-editing college-level statistics, business, and calculus for the life sciences texts.

For 11 years, I copy-edited a physics journal (until it was bought out by an American firm). I have also copy-edited papers for a fascinating journal on gambling issues.

I have also copy-edited or proofread undergraduate-level physics, chemistry, sociology, psychology, biology, nutrition, and financial management textbooks.

I work in Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat (with my stylus), and LaTeX, and am proficient in Microsoft Excel.

I have been a freelance editor since 1995, and wouldn't have it any other way.

I have a degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Waterloo, as well as a Book and Magazine Publishing Diploma from Centennial College.

In my spare time I love to knit, read, run, cycle, swim, walk, and play with my kitties.
