Experience After many years managing projects for United Nations and non-profit organisations, I realised I enjoyed writing the documents that helped them launch, run smoothly and record their journeys. When teaching English, I put the learner first and crafted materials that best served their needs. When Philips introduced a new intranet system, I offered to orient users through how-to videos.

My passion is purpose. As a freelance writer and copy-editor, I don't just write or edit documents to make them clear and compliant. I think along with my clients and become a partner who gives attention and cares.
