Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


Inform. Inquire. Inspire.

Those are the results I aim for in the text I write, the writing I edit and the courses I design.

I love words and how they work (and play) together, and I'm curious about the world. These traits have been the guiding principles of my career. I have extensive experience as an editor, writer and instructional designer. My expertise is in academic, educational and technical writing and editing, and in developing courses and training materials.

In another life, I was an English as a second language teacher in China, Macedonia, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates for 15 years. Those years gave me the ability to collaborate effectively and sensitively with people from other cultures and communicate with people from different linguistic backgrounds. I am always conscious of clarity for multiple language levels and of the cultural implications of language choices.

I am currently accepting new clients.
