Primary contact: 


I am a compassionate and hyper-analytical developmental and stylistic editor focused on mentorship and taking writing to publication. I am a graduate of Simon Fraser University's The Writers Studio where I passionately cultivated skills of substantive editing. I have a background in literature, health, and a Master's in Psychiatry. I am published in The Fiddlehead, SubTerrain, Existere, Emerge, and The Emerging Writer's Reader's Series and my novel ALONG CAME LIBBY is in progress. I work as a Content Manager for LifeSpeak. As well, I am on the Editorial Board at The Fiddlehead. I have a keen eye for detail combined with a passion for developing tension, dialogue, manifesting nuanced character, and internal conflict. I am also communications professional and savvy with blogs, newsletters, and website materials. I have completed intensive mentorships with authors Leah Mol, Leanne Dunic, Chelene Knight, as well as JJ Lee.
