Service Description

While completing two degrees in English at the University of Victoria, I developed a strong appreciation for the essential nuances of the language. I enjoyed applying my skills in an effective and persuasive writing style that resulted in favourably-received academic papers. Often I was presented with the opportunity to write about new subject matter, allowing me to hone my research abilities and discover new interests.

Because I enjoy writing and am always looking for ways of improving my skill set, I am keen to explore new territory. Working for the Provincial Government of British Columbia has provided me with a number of opportunities to transform my skills from being strictly artistic and academic, to also being technical and instructive. This infusion of an imaginative technique into a more structured business style has resulted in writing that is not only informative, but also unique and exciting.

I look forward to engaging my skills while working on different projects involving editing and re-writing, and also creative and business content for web and print. Furthermore I am completely receptive to new ideas, and will employ my skills passionately and thoroughly to ensure my clients' satisfaction. I feel confident that my curiosity, experience, and strong work ethic, combined with an open dialogue with my clients, will guarantee exceptional results.
