Academic Career

I hold First Class Honours in Linguistics with French (Sussex, UK, 1984) and was awarded the Year Abroad Dissertation Prize for my thesis on 'The Role of Linguistic Interference for French Learners of English'. 

I moved from the UK to Australia in 1991 where I undertook research in computer assisted language learning (CALL) at Bond University (Gold Coast, Queensland) and tutored in linguistics for post- and undergraduates.

Whilst studying for my Master's in Education at Queensland University of Technology (QUT, 1997), I headed up the instructional design team for Australia’s first proprietary online education system. My research into online learning environments at QUT informed content for undergraduate education subjects, which I also taught. In a separate role as Research Assistant, I worked on a range of projects in teacher development.

I am known for helping academics, authors and online business owners to produce effective writing that is accurate, concise, organised, relevant and engaging. I do this by thoroughly understanding the purpose of their writing with respect to readers, expected language usage and desired response; and by using my extensive linguistic knowledge and experience as a scholar, writer and teacher. I proofread and/or edit academic papers, book manuscripts, web copy and marketing communications.

My extensive hands-on experience as a writer, editor, proofreader, teacher and researcher, and my work in print and online media in academic, business and community contexts, have earned me respect and an outstanding reputation both professionally and personally. I am known as a friendly, conscientious and reliable professional. I offer a compassionate, understanding and incisive eye in ensuring that your writing is effective. And I smile a lot!


I reply promptly to emails and am always available to consider requests for all types of proofreading, editing or writing services. At times I will be able to start immediately, depending on my other editing commitments.
