I am a Certified Professional Editor specializing in educational and business editing, especially in the accounting and finance sectors. I work with a wide range of clients to produce high-quality written material.

Before starting my freelance editing business, I was the editorial manager at CPA Canada (Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada), where I led the editorial team in producing courses and related material for CPA Canada’s educational programs.

I was also the exams editor at CGA-Canada for seven years, and as a result I have knowledge and training in best practices for exam development and plain language editing, as well as experience in ensuring accounting and finance material is understandable and clearly explained.

I now edit and proofread a variety of material for organizations large and small to ensure that their written copy is clear and concise.
