Primary contact: 
Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


I'm fun to work with and highly competent as a copy editor. Most of my experience is with non-profits and academic publishing, particularly student papers and dissertations in APA format. I have a masters degree, I'm an adjunct professor at Western University, and I worked for thirty years in social services and health care. I'm an associate editor at Editarians and an editorial assistant at the Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. I'm passionate about words and bringing order to chaos. :)

Well-educated and detail-oriented, I apply style guides with precision but happily break the rules if that's what works best for you. I have decades of experience with people with disabilities and can ensure your work meets accessibility standards. I'm a tech wiz, doing advanced work with Microsoft Office products, Apple software (Mac/iOS), Adobe Creative Cloud apps, and Google Docs.

Imagine all your ideas being shared with ease! Let's bring clarity and flow to your communications, I'm looking forward to it.
