Profile

I am an indexer, editor, writer, and content strategist with more than 15 years of experience serving Canadian and American authors, publishers, professionals, and organizations. I help my clients inform, persuade, and delight their audiences.

As a freelance back-of-the-book indexer, I write accurate, elegant, and thoughtful indexes for books on a range of topics. As an editor, I help ensure my clients' written materials are clear, error-free, and consistent. I also provide high-level critique and beta-reading for writers who wish to present their strongest writing efforts for publication. As a writer, I work with clients in professional services, associations, and not-for-profit organizations to develop and write all manner of materials. I also pursue my own creative writing. I have a Master of Arts degree in English Literature from Queen’s University, and am continually engaged in professional development to refine my skills.
