WHAT I LOVE ABOUT EDITING is seeing ideas evolve. I have been lucky to collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life. I have worked with a holistic healer living in Maui, an Indian chef who spent much of her life in Texas, and a Costa Rican microbiologist living in Calgary, Alberta. I enjoy very much working with non-native English speakers.
