I have always loved words
Accurately used, words empower. Words describe our life and our experiences. Words can change lives.
I have spent my professional life working with words, in spoken or written form.
My professional life includes editing, project management (publicity, public relations and media) and training. These areas of work require a knowledge of using words to communicate ideas, processes and instructions effectively.
I worked for several years in each of the following countries - Australia, Scotland, America, England and Vietnam.
In 2005, I obtained an ESL qualification in the UK which enabled me to live and work in non-native English speaking cultures. I worked in Vietnam for five years and on shorter contracts in Laos, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran and Iraq. The projects I worked on were focused on international trade, diplomacy, education and security.
I prepared documents from transliteration into English, wrote speeches and reports, edited journal articles and books, and delivered English language training to government, academic and corporate clients.
Through working with governments and universities, I became attracted to the precision required for effective communication. From that experience, I decided to focus my business interests on academic editing.
As technology enables me to work internationally, I am only too happy to edit your writing wherever you might be.
