I am a seasoned writer and editor as well as a communications strategist. I have more than 20 years of experience in communications, editing and writing, and with print and digital publications. As a content strategist, I have expertise in preparing documents for all channels including print, web, social media, multimedia and scripted productions.If you are seeking a professional editor and writer, a strategist who can recommend how best to publish content, or an editorial project coordinator for brochures, briefing papers, books and digital publications, etc., feel free to contact me and we can chat about requirements. I am trilingual (fluent in English, French and Spanish). I undertake comparative reviews of English and French documents. I love words and enjoy preparing text for publication in any number of formats.
