Editing & Information Design

Specializing in health care, policy, law, and academic content

I am a substantive editor. I evaluate a document as a whole — its arguments, organization, readability, style, and design — then work with the author to transform the content into easily understood information that is designed for its intended use and audience.

I work in design as well as words, with a special interest in how text and images combine for optimal information sharing. I also use the principles of "story," such as narrative arc and case method, to shape information.

I use my 15 years' experience in health care, policy, and law to specialize in preparing documents in those fields. I also work with academic content, drawing on my experience in peer-reviewed publishing and my interest in instructional design. But those are not my limits; research and an analytical mind bring many topics within my reach.

Contact me if you've got information that needs a little transformational care.
