Let your ideas stand out in well-crafted text. I provide skilled editing at any stage of creating organized and polished documents for print or Web: developing the framework and outline; guiding the writing; editing for eloquent, clear, and concise text; proofing the final layout, text, and graphics.
I’ve been proofreading and editing full-time for close to 15 years on more than 150 projects: academic and non-fiction books for major publishers; academic articles and papers; manuals and reports for government, business, and other organizations.
Many of my projects are in humanities and social sciences: history, English language and composition, English language learning, government, philosophy, sociology, and food studies. I’ve also worked on business, geography, health care, and environmental studies texts. My degree is in linguistics; as well, I have a diploma and work experience in horticulture and a keen interest in urban agriculture and community gardening, especially in relation to sustainability.
I completed the Ryerson University Certificate in Publishing in 2008. In 2015 I earned the Certified Professional Editor designation from the Editor’s Association of Canada, which recognizes excellence in structural and stylistic editing, copyediting, and proofreading. I’m also a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
