Why should you trust me with your work?

My knowledge and experience are broad in some ways, and deep in others.

I read a lot. I read all kinds of writing. I love to travel, see new places, meet new people, and learn new things. I dabble in foreign languages, and enjoy food, drink and culture from all over the world. I worked all over health care for thirty years before starting my editing business, and I speak the same language as doctors and administrators.

I am trained and experienced in working with plain language.

I can help you save time and money by creating materials your readers can find, understand, and use easily. And I can help you simplify complex, specialized material so that more people can understand the important work you’re doing.

I continue to develop as a professional.

Classes, seminars, and conferences help me stay current and keep my editing skills sharp.

I’m flexible.

I work in Canadian, American, and British English. I can work with any documented editorial style. I can also create style guides for clients who don’t already have them.

I’m friendly and easy to work with.

I am on your side. I want to help you succeed.

Like you, I’m a writer.

I know what goes into producing the work. I have one short story published and another coming out. I also have a blog, where I write about writers and writing, editors and editing, travel and food, and other fun stuff.

Because these people did, and were satisfied with the experience.
