My mission is to make sure your readers engage with your work, understanding your message without the distraction of errors.

Like so many people, you have great ideas and worthwhile projects, but struggle to articulate or craft your story accurately. Or maybe your hard work just needs a bit of polish before it goes public. Every thesis, article, or blog post has a story to tell. I love the written word and I can make it work for you.

I provide academic editing, copyediting, and writing services. I am a Scientific Writer for the University of Adelaide, a member of ACES: The Society for Editing, and an Associate Member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd). I would love to hear about your project and work with you.
