Profile

Editors Canada-certified for excellence, I bring experience, training, and efficiency to writing and editing projects.

The short story: I provide developmental edits, manuscript evaluations, writing, consulations, and other services to freelance clients. I love good stories, dive into complex and visually rich publications, and have a special interest as an ally in reconciliation in Canada, Indigenous Peoples, and social justice.

The long story: To each project, I bring the experience of working on staff, freelance, and in business. From 2015 to August 2019, I worked as senior editor, writer, and educational publishing consultant for Inhabit Education. It was an honour and humbling to work with language specialists and other colleagues in the North on an outstanding Inuit publishing and Indigenous language rejuvenation initiative. Other past employers and clients include Pearson Canada, GoodMinds, Annick Press, Page Two Strategies, JumpMath, Oxford University Press, Nelson, Scholastic Canada, government departments, non-profits, and individual authors. 

Specialties:

- helping subject experts present their knowledge with clarity and focus for their target readers

- writing and substantive and structural editing for diverse audiences, reading levels, and interests

- planning, managing, motivating, and troubleshooting for new writers, subject experts, and multilingual authors

- markets in Canada and the United States, and for online international/English-language users

- working with large teams, multiple reviews, and complex submissions (e.g., for goverment reports and proposals)

- troubleshooting and planning to meet deadlines and budgets with best results 

Education, training, memberships, and speaking engagements include:

- Editors Canada certificate for excellence in Structural and Stylistic Editing

- Editors Canada membership

- speaking at Ryerson University to editing students, to Editors Canada (Toronto branch) about applying Professional Editorial Standards, and at the Editors Canada national conference (2017)

- Plain Language International Association (PLAIN) membership

- BA in English Literature (University of Toronto) 

- Book and Magazine Publishing/Book Editing and Design (Centennial College, Toronto)
