Overview

People are busy! They need *relevant* information delivered to them through the noise and clutter of information overload.

As a business communicator, my mission is to help you get your point across quickly, clearly and engagingly, and help your customers get what they need with a minimum of effort.

I can edit your article, web site, or employee memo to make it catchy and concise. Or let me create one for you from scratch.

Service Description

I am an excellent proofreader, and I have a knack for editing an existing draft to make it clear, concise and punchy. I am equally confident taking on a larger project – report, article, magazine or other publication – and seeing it through from start to finish. I also have extensive experience writing and editing academic papers, and would be happy to help students polish their essays or creative writing projects.

My degrees in English, Education and Creative Writing prepared me well for my communications career. I grew up in New Zealand and have worked for over 15 years in the U.S., so I am familiar with both British and American spelling and usage.
