Elizabeth H.

Deadline-driven journalist
   Canada
Ottawa

Overview

As an online journalist I'm used to tight deadlines -- often, writing effective stories in easy-to-understand terms, working in situations where minutes make a difference.
My skills also extend to design and editing; among other things, I'm a past copy editor/paginator for the Globe and Mail, for which I still write articles in business, science and the environment.
Other past clients include Florida Today, Air&Space Smithsonian, CTV Ottawa, Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
