Profile

I specialize in copy editing and proofreading.

After many years working in both the business and education sectors, I took my passion for editing and turned it into a career after completing the editing certification program at Simon Fraser University.

To the business professionals out there: I bring years of working in the oil industry and financial sector to the table. I offer copyediting and proofreading services for businesses—from product and service pamphlets to in-house and instructional documents. If your goal is to provide better and more accessible information on your website, I can use search engine optimization (SEO) techniques to clean up your web content and make it work for you. I am here to help you effectively convey your message while ensuring your readers can easily find, understand and use what they are looking for.

To those involved in the education sector: Spending over a decade working in the school system has put me in touch with the finer aspects of education. I am an advocate of lifelong learning and removing barriers to education. I will apply the principles of plain language writing to the editing of your instructional manuals, course materials and seminar presentations with the goal of reaching your target audience on an appropriate level.

To the writers and authors of articles and novels: Having written the first draft of a historical fiction novel, I am familiar with research and the need to ensure consistency in facts. I understand your struggles to produce the best work possible—and the obstacles that sometimes stand in the way. A lot of sweat and tears go into writing, and I will ensure your voice remains intact and that my edits align with the desired narrative.

I am dedicated to working with you as part of a team, keeping your vision at the forefront while we polish your work.
