Chickadee Valley Editorial


I create back-of-book indexes using concise, straight-forward language focused on the needs of the reader.

My experience and expertise include: food & cookbooks – vegan/vegetarian cooking, and food allergies; arts & crafts – knitting, sewing, fibre arts, leathercraft, woodworking, drawing; animal care and grooming; nature, gardening, sustainable living, and alternative construction; homeschooling; and family history memoirs.

My indexing training was completed with University of Berkeley – Indexing: Theory and Application. My professional development includes: Toronto Metropolitan University – Editing Recipes and Cookbooks; and Culinary Indexing – American Society for Indexing.

I completed the copyediting program at Simon Fraser university and am a member of Editors Canada. My editing experience includes cookbooks, culinary newsletters, online scientific journals, corporate proposals and user documentation; workplace arbitration reports; blogs; and family history memoirs.
