I am an accomplished communications professional with over a decade of experience in senior communication positions in complex academic and national non-profit environments. In my work, I have been responsible for high-quality communication products for a variety of audiences. I both write and edit a wide array of published materials—from web site pages, newsletters, feature stories, brochures and proposals, to annual reports, speeches, educational resources and media tools.
As a freelance writer and editor, I enjoy working on both long-term projects, as well as occasional short-term contracts. My recent client list includes federal government departments, crown corporations, universities and colleges, and mid- and small-sized businesses.
I am well organized and efficient, adept at juggling multiple priorities and have the ability to deliver high quality results under tight deadlines. While I enjoy working independently as a writer and editor, I also thrive on working with dynamic teams, and taking part in consultative strategic planning and creative brainstorming activities.
