Primary contact: 


If you want something published in print or online, I can help.

I am a publishing professional with 25 years of experience writing, editing, photographing, desktop publishing (formatting) and managing print and online publications, including social media.

I help not-for-profit organizations gather and package information together, so it is useful and engaging. This brings their target audiences back to their newspapers, magazines, newsletters, journals and websites for more. I've worked with subject matter experts in Indigenous health, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, nursing and health/medical education.

My superior organizational and time-management skills allow me to complete overlapping complex projects within schedule and on budget while remaining calm diplomatic under the pressure of multiple high priorities and tight deadlines.
