I have enjoyed playing with words since I was a child, starting with creative writing, then moving on to scientific and technical writing. With an undergraduate degree in Agriculture, a Masters degree in Environmental Microbiology, a PhD in Food Microbiology, and post-doctoral work in Environmental Engineering, I have experience in a wide range of fields. I have edited works in:

  • microbiology
  • organic, analytical, and food chemistry
  • chemical and civil engineering
  • food science
  • agriculture
  • biology
  • genetics
  • hydrogeology
  • medicine
  • environmental science

I have experience writing and copyediting graduate theses, journal manuscripts, papers, reports, scholarship applications, grants, and posters, for both native and non-native English speakers. I have also served on a selection panel for university funding, and have participated in the peer review process as a critical reviewer for manuscripts submitted to scientific journals.

I enjoy helping others transform their communications into concise, polished papers; please contact me for help with your manuscript!
