My name is Karen Smith. I provide editing, proofreading and other services to individuals and organizations in the private, government and not-for-profit sectors. My clients appreciate my attention to detail and my delivery of projects on time and within budget. I apply style guides and plain language principles to make text consistent and ensure that your written communications are clear and engaging.
I graduated from Queen's University with a BA (Honours) in History before working as a legislative editor for a major legal services company. I have a background in business administration and human resources, and I have formal training in editing from Simon Fraser University.
I am a current member of Editors Canada.
I am also a pre-qualified supplier to the Government of Canada in ProServices Category 10.11, Communications Consultant.
I have lived in the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Ontario, and I now work as a consulting editor based in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada.
