Business, Manuscript and Academic Editing


I can help you with all your editing needs from proofreading to copyediting to developmental and structural editing, as well as any rewriting or writing.  I edit and write in US, UK and Canadian English and specialize in editing for non-native speakers. 

My background includes 30 years of experience as a writer, editor, journalist, communications manager and communications consultant, working in the private, public and non-profit sector, and consulting with many entrepreneurs and small businesses.  My education includes an MA in Organization Development, a BA in English and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language.

I do all editing online, and in the last three years I‘ve worked for clients in 41 countries – a number that reflects the global economy, the fact that English is the international language of business, and the fact that students from many nations study at American, British and International universities. 

  1. Manuscripts:                             books and e-books on a wide variety of subjects

  2. Business documents:      proposals, reports, white papers, articles, web content, etc.

  3. Academic papers:               including theses, dissertations, journal articles and presentations.
