Writer and editor in Winnipeg, Manitoba

About me

Words matter to every business, whether you’re promoting landscaping services or announcing a million-dollar investment. Mistakes and clunky sentences can undermine your expertise and make potential customers, clients and hiring managers think twice.

I collaborate with subject matter experts to create plain language, user-focused web content, business documents, and marketing materials. I’ve worked with clients and businesses in government, education, financial services, insurance, agriculture, health and wellness.

I’ll work with you to create clear, engaging text that oozes credibility and makes a great first impression.

Who I am

I came home from my first day of kindergarten in a huff. The teacher hadn’t taught my class how to read yet. If we weren’t learning to read, what was the point? My love for words – my word-nerdery, if you will – runs deep.

I grew up in rural Manitoba and have called Winnipeg home for the past decade. I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts and exploring Winnipeg’s mouthwatering food scene.
