On Point Writing and Editing

Ottawa, ON K1V 6Z2
Primary contact: 


I am an experienced editor who can quickly understand what you need to explain, and I can help you do it clearly. I take complicated issues and make them understandable to a general audience. 

As a former government executive with more than 16 years in the federal public service, I understand the kind of information people need to make decisions. I can help you polish written documents to convey just the right message.
