The book wouldn’t be what it is if it hadn’t been for your beautiful editing. You did a terrific job, and most of all I am very grateful that you kept my voice and style!

I’ve been working on the website all day and just wanted to say thank you again. The descriptions are great — consistent, factual, awesome. I really appreciate that you were able to do this on such short notice.

Suzanne did a fantastic job editing my PhD dissertation “The Relationship between Trauma (Including Posttraumatic Stress) and Reconciliation in Transitioning Societies: A Comparative Case Study of Cambodia and Mozambique” and two journal articles related to my research. I really appreciated Suzanne’s attention to detail and her flexibility. She worked tirelessly under tight deadlines, consistently delivering high quality work. Suzanne clearly loves what she does and it was a pleasure working with her.

— Randy G., Author


We rely on Suzanne to assist with our ongoing work, which includes writing and editing a number of different documents pertaining to the international development work our company does. Suzanne’s work is always excellent and her ability to adapt to changing needs and meet tight deadlines is greatly appreciated.

— Michael Miner, Results-Based Management Group


Thanks Suzanne for all your help! I find working with you really valuable. It’s both interesting (and frustrating) to see how the changes you make strengthen the paper so much. It’s interesting because the changes are not earth shattering, just small but crucial. It’s frustrating because I can’t see why I don’t see what you see!

— Jeanie Wills, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of Saskatchewan


Highly professional, quick to respond to short notice requests and willing to tailor her efforts to suit individual needs, Suzanne provided outstanding editing services on my MBA thesis. On one occasion, with very short notice, she eagerly reviewed and returned my work to me so that I was able to revise and submit prior to deadline, contributing to my eventual success.

— Tony Johnson, MBA


As a PhD Student who has had occasion to work with a few professional editors over my academic journey to date, I found working with Suzanne a truly remarkable pleasure. Her feedback was thorough, comprehensive, and very helpful. Most importantly though, she was extremely kind and congenial to work with and was incomparably punctual in getting my work back to me when faced with a firm deadline. I very highly recommend her!

— PhD Student, University of Toronto


Suzanne patiently moved me from ignorant to enlightened, helping me develop a comprehensive, step-by-step social media marketing strategy using all of the above and more. The training Suzanne provided covered not only the content for e-marketing but also the technical know-how to make it happen, and with her coaching I’ve gone from feeling overwhelmed to enthusiastically enjoying the process. I’m thrilled with my new website and could not have done it without Suzanne.

— Carole Hubbard, Freelance Editor


Suzanne has never failed to impress me with her responsiveness and attention to detail. In an industry that can often be staid, her sense of humour, willingness to collaborate, and ability to quickly adapt to changing project requirements are greatly appreciated.
