Thank you for taking some time to visit my website. May I take a few moments to introduce myself?
I am a scientist by training, but have been a knitter all my life. My first professional post was in a research unit where I developed my programming skills and investigated the performance of sonar systems for the Royal Navy.
As a mother of four children I invested much of my time in knitting and sewing their clothes. When the family grew older I embarked on a new career as a teacher of physics and computing, eventually moving on to oversee examinations, including serving on an advisory panel with Pearson education, and finally as a compliance officer.
All the roles I have filled have one thing in common; a requirement for great attention to detail. It is this, and the ability to break complex tasks into small units, that have given me the skills set required of a reliable technical editor.
I have taught both children and adults both in this country and abroad and have wide experience of writing clear instructions and explanations for all abilities and for those who do not have English as their first language.
In between technical editing projects I tend my garden, feed my hens, read, bake, play the violin and enjoy the Dorset countryside as well as finding time for my own knitting projects.
