Professional Editing and Proofreading
for Academic and Educational Materials
Specialist in English Language Teaching, Education, and Related Subjects
I have spent my entire career working with language. My school and university studies included courses in French, German, Spanish, and Latin. My degrees are in linguistics and education, and I spent over 25 years teaching English language learners, particularly in the field of English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

I started editing professionally in 2010, and I have been freelance since 2012. When I'm not editing, I write textbooks for learners of academic English; I have published textbooks for the global market, for publishers such as National Geographic Learning and Pearson ELT.
I am a dual citizen of the UK and Canada. I grew up in England, and I now live in Canada with my husband and two grown-up children, both recent university graduates.
