Published Work

In 2003, I was just a simple 20-year-old library clerk with blue hair and a leather jacket when an editor took a chance and gave me a weekly music column in daily newspaper the Edmonton Sun.

Today, I’m a full-time freelance writer and editor.

Over my thirteen years as a writer I’ve honed my abilities and become an expert at putting together feature stories, penning reviews, and conducting interviews. My career has afforded me some memorable moments, including a long telephone chat with Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits (a childhood favourite) and having a girly sleepover in one of Canada’s most haunted places – a death-row jail cell.

My areas of expertise have expanded, and nowadays I specialize in travel, lifestyle, and business writing. I work based from my home in Vancouver, and am available to travel worldwide.

I completed an editorial internship with Venture Publishing in 2011, working on business magazine Alberta Venture and the company’s large portfolio of contract magazines. Since then I’ve primarily worked as a freelance editor, completing over 4,500 projects for a client base that stretches across the globe.

Editing

After completing an editorial internship with business magazine Alberta Venture in 2011, I went on to freelance as a well-rounded editor specializing in copy editing and proofreading. Today, I’m a top-rated editor on Fiverr, with 99.5 percent positive feedback and nearly 5,000 orders delivered since 2013. My editing service even earned me a mention in Time magazine.

I currently copy edit Positive Living magazine, and am a former section editor with the University of British Columbia’s radio station magazine, Discorder.

I’m highly experienced in all kinds of editing work, and have completed projects ranging from rewording website content for international companies into native-level English, to editing novels from start to finish, to polishing blog posts and business content. I love working with new clients, so please get in touch with me to discuss your project.
