Service Description

I have experience as a freelance editor and writer for a financial services company and a business magazine. I also worked as an editor for Agriculture Canada and do a lot of writing and editing as a Public Relations assistant in my current occupation.

I am a quick-learner and enjoy a challenge, so anything I don't know can easily be learned and put into practice. Also, I am able to manage different projects at once and have consistently received high grades in my academic life and positive feedback in my work experience. I am adaptable and am confident that I have the skills and tools to meet your needs.
