Profile

If you want something published in print or online that resonates with readers, I can help.

I am a publishing professional with 25 years of experience in writing, editing, photographing, desktop publishing and managing newspapers, magazines, newsletters, journals and websites. I help organizations gather and package information, so it is useful and engaging, which brings their audiences coming back for more.

I am also a communications professional, specializing in web and social media marketing and communicaitons. As well as having a journalism diploma, I have a social media certificate. All of my writing and editing keeps the target audience and platform top of mind.

I've worked with subject matter experts in Indigenous health, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, nursing and medical education. Most of my work has been with health not-for-profit organizations.

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