Biographical Note
I am a freelance writer and editor with a strong background in research and writing. I hold a Master of Arts degree in English with first class honours from the University of Auckland. I have worked as the research manager of an academic search firm and as the development officer for Auckland Grammar School. From 2005 to 2010, I was contracted as the publications manager for the Early Childhood Council. This involved the overall management of all publications including producing the ECC's full-colour quarterly flagship magazine, Swings & Roundabouts; managing its online content management system; and coordinating all published conference materials and other promotional copy. I am the editor of Envoy, the member publication of the New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives, and I regularly write and edit a number of electronic newsletters.

I have extensive experience writing, editing and proofreading website copy, articles, newsletters and promotional material. I have produced work for a wide variety of businesses, educational organisations and not-for-profit and member-based associations.

I enjoy helping people communicate effectively with their clients, potential customers, stakeholders, or members. 

I am available for individual jobs or for regular ongoing work.
