I received my B.Sc. in Biological Sciences from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, B.C., Canada, in 1970 and followed this with three years of postgraduate studies in mycology. I was a research assistant in botany in 1974-1975 and subsequently a research assistant in animal physiology between 1975 and 1980.

My copy-editing experience began with Springer-Verlag in 1976 and continues to the present time. My areas of specialty with Springer have been theoretical and applied genetics, plant physiology, and cell culture. The journals I have copy-edited for Springer are: Theoretical and Applied Genetics; Plant Cell Reports; Journal of Plant Research; Sexual Plant Reproduction. I have a good working knowledge of life sciences and bio-medical fields.

I also have experience in the translation field--Dutch to English--on a number of subjects.
