Professional Experience

Development Associate, University of Toronto
January 2017 — August 2018

While working with the Office of Advancement, I was responsible for the collection and final preparation of the annual activity reports for donor funded programs and positions within the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Arts & Science. These were drafted by the program directors and chairholders of endowed funds to be submitted to the donors who made their programs and/or research possible. My responsibilities included copy editing and later formatting the submitted drafts, ensuring all supplementary were included and correct, occasional fact-checking, and rewriting some of the more academic language for a non-academic audience.

Contributor & Editorial Intern, Faze Magazine
January 2017 — April 2017

During the final months of my editing certificate, I completed an internship with Faze Magazine that provided me with experience editing pieces at all stages of development. I provided feedback to new writers to help them improve the structure and clarity of their work, copy edited contributor articles before final layout, proofread and updated old information on previously published articles, and contributed articles of my own for online publication.
