Too many projects on the go?

If you need help with a council document you have come to the right place.

I can assist you with the whole review process (from scoping through to adoption of a strategy, policy or bylaw) or work on specific writing and editing tasks.

I am a stickler for meeting deadlines, so handing over one of your projects means you can breathe easier, knowing you won’t be left with half-completed work.

Say no to overwhelm 


I can help with policy papers, writing of plans and strategies on behalf of council officers, development of consultation documents, and editing of all kinds of council publications.

I have worked with councils around New Zealand: Auckland Council, Environment Canterbury, Marlborough District Council, Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, Wellington City Council, Porirua City Council, Kāpiti Coast District Council, Waikato District Council, Kaipara District Council and Northland Regional Council. I also provide editing services for Taituarā and central government agencies.

Is there a document in your inbox that you don’t have time to deal with right now?


You are only three steps away from meeting your deadline.
