Experience

Christmas bellsMore than just an editor, I have extensive experience in conservation biology, environmental science and natural resource management. I have worked with numerous government and non-government agencies and understand the legislative and policy frameworks you work within.

Nature Edit has been providing thorough, high quality, confidential editing, writing and rewriting services to a range of clients since 2009. I specialise in scientific, technical, strategic planning and policy documents written for the general public.

Fungi for Land (2021)

I’m very excited to be involved with the Fungi for Land team as their editor, creating Australia’s first book on practical land management harnessing the mysterious mycological kingdom. The guide we are developing is designed for both public and private land managers, with the main focus being on integrating fungi into current management activities.

Publications Editor (2019 to 2020)

In 2019 and 2020 I was contracted by the Australian Macadamia Society as their Publications Editor. I coordinated the production of 11 quarterly journals during this time, including writing articles, interviewing growers and processors, copyediting and rewriting submitted articles, designing infographics, assisting with layout and design, proofreading, meeting tight production deadlines. My time with AMS was most rewarding and I received fantastic feedback from AMS staff and their members on the quality of the content and design of the AMS News Bulletins I produced.

As the CEO, Jolyon Burnett, said when I left, ‘Thank you so much for your exceptional work on the Bulletin and for all the other valuable contributions you made. It has been educational watching a professional editor at work.’

I try and keep the hyperlinks to documents on external websites up to date, however, sometimes these links break – apologies in advance if this happens! Also, please keep in mind that clients often make minor changes to documents after I have provided the final edit to them (e.g. they may add a Foreword, or make other changes/additions to the text). Similarly, I often edit draft documents prepared for public exhibition and sometimes minor changes are made to the draft prior to publication of the final.
