With a personal library of over 500 books, including a first edition of Gone With the Wind, reading has always been my passion. My love of reading has translated into a fulfilling career of publishing services including copy editing, proofreading, and fact-checking. I also bring to the table a superb level of organization and enthusiasm for my craft.
I have an undergraduate degree in Classical Studies from the University of Victoria, and an Editing Certificate and a Master of Publishing from Simon Fraser University. In my Editing Certificate, I focused on copy editing and advanced grammar courses, because everyone needs to know that “The ‘Flying’ Nun” is a gerund.
I worked for Greystone Books for four years in the editorial department as Publishing Coordinator. In this role I copy edited and proofread a variety of materials, and I reviewed incoming submissions for quality and suitability. I participated in the editing process from acquisition to finished product, and was exposed to all aspects of the publishing world.
