Personal Biography

Copywriter, researcher, librarian, editor/proofreader – Skye EnviroEditing. Lived in Tokyo, Japan for sixteen years. The last two years in Japan, I was the in-house editor at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and since my return to Canada in 2006, I continue to provide IGES with freelance editing and proofreading service.

• Most recent large project for IGES was the Water Environment Partnership in Asia report from 13 Asian countries entitled WEPA Outlook on Environmental Management in Asia 2015. This report was distributed by the Japanese vice minister of the environment to his counterparts at a ministerial meeting at the 7th World Water Forum in Daegu, South Korea in April 2015.

The genres of written material I have worked with include: non-fiction books, newsletters, brochures, corporate correspondence, documents, and reports; government correspondence, documents, environmental research material (papers, journal articles, reports, case studies, surveys, commissioned research papers, policy briefs), and website material.
