Plain language has never been more important to program and policy success. I have extensive experience in plain language writing and editing in a number of fields, and can ensure that your communications are clear, concise and effective. I have worked on a variety of projects, with a wide range of clients that includes numerous Ontario government ministries, federal government agencies, and the City of Toronto.

Before establishing my own communications consultancy, I was Manager, Public Affairs, at Magna International Inc. Recent projects include writing and editing several high-level reports for government and government agencies, including: Report of the Student Transportation Task Force, Report of the Ontario Building Safety Technical Advisory Panel, Shaping Land Use in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, Report to the Ontario Minister of Education regarding the Toronto District School Board, Guide to Green Schools, and the report of the Ontario Basic Income Consultations..
