About the editor

About me

Work experience

I am passionate about words and communication. My editing experience spans 30 years, of which most was as a part-time freelancer while teaching. I love reading (fiction and non-fiction), anything related to gardening and food (and yes, confession time - I am addicted to plants and good food).

I have 30 years of editing experience and still learn every day. As some of my duties in teaching, I was part of a team responsible for editing and translating all communication, tests and exams within the school environment (annual reports, letters, financial statements, etc.). For the past two years I have been with CACTUS Editage, editing journal articles, theses and other matter on a full-time freelance basis. I have also edited and translated work for private individuals and Stadio.
