I bring a wealth of diverse skills and interests–and more than 10 years’ experience as a freelance editor and writer–to every project.

I am fascinated by the fluidity of language and its constant evolution with changing communication styles. I believe in the importance of plain language, conscious editing, and accessibility in document design, and I will advocate for them in every project I take on.

Ongoing professional development is a vital component of my practice. I regularly participate in writing and editing workshops, complete college and university-level coursework, and am a member of several professional writing and editing organizations.

  • Introduction to Plain Language Principles. Editors Canada. Instructor: Michelle Waitzman.
