Profile

I specialize in editing policy and procedure manuals, specifically in the financial industry though I have also worked with legal documents and insurance documents. I’m a copy editor, proofreader, and publisher with a bachelor’s degree in English from Kwantlen University, a professional writing diploma from Douglas College, and a plain language certificate from Simon Fraser University. I also create templates, format documents, and create .pdf files for print publishing.

My Background

I have worked for nine years on financial policy and procedure documents as well as forms and contracts used in the credit union industry. I helped train new co-workers on in-house styles and procedures as well as helped create checklists and workflows for continued use within the department.

I am also interested in blogs as I have started two of my own. One is about my business life and is hosted on my website. The other is about trips I take with my son called Showers and Stars.
