A former teacher, I loved watching my students learn to shape their relationship with the world around them through language. It is as much fun to share a first graders’ discoveries as hearing a struggling teenager find their voice or an adult finally unlocking the magic of literacy.
As an editor, my goal is to find the most effective ways to engage readers and tell stories – true and otherwise. And, of course, avoid obnoxious mistakes. I have edited memoirs, graduate theses and dissertations, technical reports, and children’s books.
I am currently a member of the Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island (PEAVI) and Editors Canada.
