Lakehill Editing



I am an editor and proofreader who works with a wide range of clients, including government departments, individuals, businesses, graduate students, and not-for-profits. I can offer you outstanding attention to detail while I apply style guides and plain language principles to make your writing clear, consistent, and engaging. My clients appreciate my attention to detail and my delivery of projects on time and within budget.

I graduated from Queen's University with a BA (Honours) in History before working as a legislative editor for a major legal services company. I have formal training in editing and proofreading through Simon Fraser University and a diploma in business administration (human resources).

I am a pre-qualified supplier to the Government of Canada in ProServices Category 10.11, Communications Consultant.
