Personal Biography

Every business document tells a story. I ensure the story is clear, interesting and meaningful. The editing process is flexible, but the outcome is consistent: writing that is clear, precise and engaging.

What clients can expect:
As your editor, I help you accomplish your goals. I work with you to match your objectives with your readers’ interests, while ensuring the writing is clear and consistent, and that it says what you intend it to say. Whether you need a report, proposal or presentation, the result is a document that works.

What I bring to editing:
My credentials include ten years of editing experience, an MA in professional communication, a diploma in professional writing and editing, and an MSc in microbiology. With a background in both science and business, I bring an analytical approach to editing projects, together with an excellent understanding of business communication and workplace documents. My specialty is making complex concepts both engaging and easy to understand.
