I am a professional editor and indexer who will edit or index your book to suit your needs and the specifications of your publisher. I provide exceptional service and competitive rates, while always following best practices. I have completed the Simon Fraser University course Indexing: An Essential Art and Science, and the University of California Berkeley course Indexing: Theory and Application. I have also completed several editing courses offered by Simon Fraser University.
I have diverse interests, so I have worked on a wide range of topics.

The interdisciplinary nature of sociolinguistics includes gender studies and intersectionality, humanities, history, legal language and law, psychology, psycholinguistics, race and racial issues, ethnolects, sociology, political science, social sciences in general, as well as education and teaching. For my teaching, I have developed online courses and online course materials.
