About  me


I have spent a lifetime pursuing the things I love, all of which are in some way or another connected to language. 

During my three years as a PhD candidate in Education, and teaching academic writing to undergraduate students, I discovered my true calling - editing. I like nothing more than to work closely with clients to provide a personalised and meticulous copyediting and/or proofreading service - one that will lift your writing to the highest level of clarity.

I love to write too, and am happiest when reporting and writing feature articles and arts reviews, especially about music. I am currently writing a book about the life and times of iconic Australian artist Pro Hart, from the perspective of his wife, Raylee Hart.

I am a full professional member of the Institute of Professional Editors, Australia, have an honors degree in Education and a postgraduate qualification in Journalism. I worked, studied and researched in the field of health and medicine for over 20 years and also hold an A.MusTCL in Music.
