Primary contact: 


With over 20 years experience as a freelance editor, writer, and researcher in educational publishing, I have edited content in many scientific disciplines, including zoology, botany, ecology, genetics, geology, cell biology, physics, and chemistry. My strengths are in developmental, substantive, and stylistic editing, and rewriting. I help authors express complex ideas clearly so that readers can understand concepts easily.

I have a B.Sc. in zoology and a strong interest in environmental issues.
