Edmonton, AB


As a trained dancer with a degree in mechanical engineering, I am hardwired to pay close attention to details. My Master of Arts degree in Professional Communication has prepared me to contribute effectively at a strategic level, while developing my skills in research, analysis, writing, editing, and project management. 

In my current role as a Technical Writer at the University of Alberta, I provide writing support to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in Civil and Environmental Engineering. My key duties include editing journal manuscripts and dissertations for publication, and contributing to grant applications, presentations, and formal reports on the research activites of the group.
