Please Note: I have recently completed a Juris Doctor (Law) degree from the University of Ottawa (2018). I am currently on maternity leave from articling and writing the Ontario Bar exam. I am happy to take on new clients, however, prefer editing over tutoring due to child care responsibilities. I am a award winning writer, published locally and internationally, and vastly experienced in the areas of editing academic papers, assignments, commercial/official documentation and applications. I thoroughly enjoy working with my students to develop and refine their writing and academic skills and abilities.
