About.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME.

I’m freelance journalist, editor, and commercial writer who knows how to wear many hats, often at once.

My work appears across print and online publications including PROFIT, Canadian Business, THIS Magazine, The Coast, and The Chronicle Herald to name a few. I was the editor of Atlantic Books Today magazine, and am currently the editor of East Coast Living and Chamber Vision magazines, and contributing editor of Halifax Magazine.

On the commercial side, I’ve worked with Bell, Google, Manulife, and many other companies around the world. I’ve created brand voices for blogs and social media accounts, written white papers, advertorials, and web content. I’ve written for diverse industries, from yoga gear retailers to windmill makers, and CD recycling plants to international recruitment firms.

I’m always open to hearing about new opportunities. Contact me with story ideas and commercial project queries.

Clients.

I can sing my own praises all day, but you want to know if I’m good at my job. Here’s what people I’ve worked with say:

“Kim is one of the finest editors I’ve ever worked alongside. She has a keen understanding of the craft, and does her work with precision, passion, and integrity. She’s a gifted storyteller, with a rare understanding of what motivates and engages readers. She improves every publication she touches.”

Trevor J. Adams Senior Editor, Metro Guide Publishing

“Put it this way: If there was a need for a quick turnaround of a news story, one that stood strongly on its own, requiring little or no edits and provided just enough breadth, depth and interest, you turned to Kim. Always reliable, smart, quick, and effective – that’s Kim.”

Elisa Birnbaum Founder/Publisher, SEE Change Magazine

“She demonstrated excellent organizational skills, unwavering professionalism, and, perhaps most impressively, infallible levelheadedness under even the most chaotic of deadlines. When Kim takes on a project, she truly commits to its successful completion—a rare attribute that helped this editor sleep much better at nights. I highly recommend her.”

Deborah Aarts Senior Editor, Canadian Business & PROFIT

“Kim managed a long list of geographically-far-flung photo shoots for a corporate client with grace, patience, and a heavy elbow, keeping photographers and clients alike in line, focused on the task, and on schedule. I will work with her anytime, knowing I can trust that her portion of the project will be taken care of.”
