Professional development

I have participated in the Editors Canada’s conferences annually since 2012.

As co-coordinator of Editors NL, the provincial section of Editors Canada, I regularly organize and attend (and sometimes deliver) professional development activities.

I took Ryerson University’s copy editing (CDP102) course in 2012 and the Substantive and Stylistic editing course (CPD202) in 2015.

I attended an “Eight-Step Editing” workshop in September 2012 in St. John’s.

I attended the Translate in Quebec City international conference in August 2013.

Professional statement

Language is something I’ve always been passionate about. I like the challenge of taking writing that is unclear or overly specialized and untangling the words so they become accessible to a wider audience. I enjoy my work because I learn so much: the texts I work with are enormously varied. I work very hard to ensure that the documents I write, edit, and translate meet my own personal standards of quality.
