Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


I am a professional educator since 2006, and work as a teacher in Vancouver, BC. I have extensive experience tutoring high school and university students in languages, mathematics and the sciences. My work as a freelance academic editor began in 2015, when I began regularly editing PhD theses, scientific journals, and essays. Many of my tasks included reading, editing, and participating in the preparation of technical reports and manuscripts for submission to various engineering and scientific journals.

I have one Bachelor's degree in French and Spanish, and a second one in Education. I also possess a Master's Degree in Education.

I am an organized and thorough editor, always striving for excellence. I take pleasure in refining written work and in producing writing of excellent quality.
