I am a freelance editor who lives in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. I love words and working with them. I am extremely conscientious and will not leave a piece of writing until I feel it is completely error-free and flows smoothly. Although I enjoy editing almost any piece of written communication, I have a special interest in website content and applying SEO principles to ensure increased traffic to a site. Although I live remotely, I am a people person. I enjoy the process of collaborating with an author to make a good piece of writing even better! My goal is to help you to retain YOUR voice, making suggestions along the way to make your writing the best it can be. Remember, the final word is always yours!
