I have worked in the Canadian federal public service for the past 30 years in communications, public relations and outreach.
I covered a wide spectrum of subject matter, focusing in the following areas:
I gained a fair amount of experience in the legislative and regulatory aspects of these fields. Environmental matters also appeal to me.
Over the years, I have done a large number of comparative and French edits, as well as copy editing.
In May 2012, I obtained my Translation Diploma from l’Université Saint-Boniface. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree (Home Economics) from the Université de Moncton (1982) and a Diploma in Business Administration from the University of Ottawa (1990).
My love of words and languages has steered me into a new career as a freelance translator and editor. It is with great enthusiasm that I embark on this journey.
