always been fascinated by words, the nuances of meaning,
and the written expression of ideas. Even as a child,
I wrote poetry and fiction, which I still do today. I
learned to write in the academic style while doing my
B.A. in Psychology and Linguistics at UBC and SFU. Then,
entering the corporate world, I learned about business
and technical writing and earned my Technical Writing
Certificate from the Writing and Publishing program at
SFU. After a long, successful career with a major national
company, I took some time off to indulge my love of travel.
In January, 2008, I launched my own technical and business
writing company, Mountain Scribe Writing Services.
I’m not working, writing, reading, or taking writing
classes, I can usually be found outside in nature. I enjoy
all sorts of outdoor activity and incorporate that enjoyment
when I travel to interesting spots around the world, as
well as when I volunteer in the community. Most recently,
I’ve volunteered with the STC (Society for Technical
Communication) and have also been helping organize and
officiate at the Nordic skiing events leading up to the
Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games.
