Sarah Snobelen, BScPhm, RPh



I am a freelance medical editor and proofreader as well as an experienced clinical hospital pharmacist. I perform substantive editing, copyediting, proofreading, fact-checking, and rewriting for clients such as academics, researchers, continuing medical education companies, publishers, and pharmaceutical advertising agencies. I have experience working with multiple style guides including Chicago, AMA, CSE, APA, MLA, and TERMIUM Plus. I also have extensive experience working with ESL authors, particularly Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.

Some of the media that I work with include:

- guidelines

- continuing medical education programs

- journal articles and scientific manuscripts

- literature reviews

- slide decks

- copy decks

- print and digital advertising

- leave behinds

- posters and presentations

- textbooks 

With 15 years of experience in retail and hospital pharmacy, I have developed speciality knowledge in a number of therapeutic areas such as diabetes, cardiology, oncology, inflammatory bowel disease, biologics and biosimilars, nephrology and renal transplant, surgery, and addiction medicine. I am a Registered Pharmacist (RPh) with the Ontario College of Pharmacists, and I have completed the American Medical Writers Association Essential Skills Certificate. My professional affiliations include Editors Canada, the American Medical Writers Association, the Council of Science Editors, and the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists.

I am reliable, responsive, meticulous, and very respectful of deadlines, and I strive to provide strategic questions, insights, and clarity to the documents that I work with. Please get in touch to find out how I can help you with your next project!
