Words matter. Your words matter. You need an editor who makes every word count. I can do that for you. For over 10 years, writers have been trusting me with their words because I respect their ideas, I respect their unique voices, and I respect the power of the written word.

I have experience in developmental editing, stylistic editing, plain language editing, copy editing, proofreading, and manuscript evaluation, and I have worked on texts ranging from YA historical fantasy to doctoral dissertations, from ESL textbooks to employee handbooks. No matter the genre or the subject matter, regardless of the level of edit required, my primary responsibility remains the same: to make your words express your ideas as intended. 

I have worked as an in-house editor for an international educational publisher, a federal regulatory agency, and a provincial legislative assembly. Now, as a freelancer, I apply that editorial and publishing experience to book-length projects across a range of genres and subjects. I am particularly interested in sports (including football, baseball, and running), health and wellness (physical, emotional, and spiritual), religion, social justice, and memoir.


Former clients have offered these kind words about my work:

Nadine, it is always a pleasure to work with you. In addition to your exceptional proofreading skills, your conscientiousness and careful attention to detail round out the package—projects are submitted with concise, well-organized queries, and communication is thorough and appropriately timed. I know that I can trust you with even the most challenging of titles. Thank you for making my job easier!

Senior Production Coordinator (Educational Publisher)

Nadine is very technically skilled with language, able to find ways to express ideas that improve grammar, clarity, and structure. . . . I was also very impressed in her ability to think beyond the text and draw connections within the material that were unclear in the initial drafting. . . . Overall, I found her to be an exceptional editor whose skills enhanced and expanded my own and led to a finished product that I am very proud of. I hope to work with her again on future editions of the textbook.
