I bring a wealth of experience to my work as an editor and writer, including a Master’s degree in English Literature, numerous professional development workshops and seminars, a lot of reading, and an informed perspective that respects the need for intelligent portrayals of ideas and identities. 

My foremost aim in editing — whether for fiction, non-fiction, academic works or technical writing — is clarity, while staying true to the original voice of the writer. 

Clients have included: the YWCA of Edmonton; the Inside Out Film Festival; the National Organization of Immigrant & Visible Minority Women; Queen West Community Health Centre; Regent Park Community Health Centre; UNESCO; the Toronto ALFA Centre; the Canadian Congress for Learning Opportunities for Women; the International Council for Adult Education; Resonance Creative Consultants; the Toronto Arts Council Foundation, the Ontario Public Service Employees Union; FUSE Magazine; and the Corporation of Yonge-Dundas Square in the City of Toronto.
