I am a fine-details person who enables others to express themselves clearly and concisely. I edit grant applications, journal articles, book chapters, monographs, and promotion and tenure dossiers.
As an editor, my job is to help researchers articulate their skills, experiences, and plans to the right audience in the right genre. With a PhD in English Literature, experience reviewing arts & culture grants for the Vancouver Foundation, and success in editing ~$4M of research funding proposals, I specialize in editing academic work in the health sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
I've been writing the monthly advice column "Ask Dr. Editor" for University Affairs since 2018.
My first name rhymes with “militia” and is derived from the Latin for “joy”.
