OWNER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, WRITING COACH

Self-employed
May, 2016 – Present (over 2 years)

My greatest passion is helping people translate those immaterial entities we call thoughts and feelings into the kind of words that strike a reader somewhere real.

I am the founder, owner, and editor-in-chief of Juniper Editing & Creative: a boutique, all-female company of editors and writers from across Canada presently based in Montreal, Quebec.

We work with driven female-identifying writers and authors to define and achieve their unique vision in words.

Personally, I'm most alive professionally when helping authors realize and refine their creative visions. I've worked and studied on three continents and accrued a first-class BA Hons in English literature from Swansea University in Wales, UK; an MA in English literature from the University of Victoria in BC, Canada; and a Copy Editing accreditation from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I have been an editor in one way or another for seven years, before which I was Head of English at an international high school in Abu Dhabi.

I am a proud and active member of the Editor's Association of Canada, and work with traditional and self-publishing houses as well as independent authors, entrepreneurs, and activists to shape and master their message.
