“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”Anne Frank
A born and bred (and proud) Canberran, Kellie is a writer, an editor and a teacher with over 25 years of experience.
Kellie’s greatest adventures have been: climbing Mt Fuji, just in time to see a spectacular sunrise; dragon boating down the Arno River in Florence, Italy, with Dragons Abreast Canberra; and raising her two children who are currently teenagers (and we all know what a ride that can be).
Kellie is an active member of the Canberra Society of Editors, the Institute of Professional Editors, Australian Literacy Educators Association and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
A committed and somewhat fierce advocate for people with Asperger’s Syndrome, Kellie was the sole recipient of the ACT Writers Centre Anne Edgeworth Foundation Fellowship in 2019 with her project to bring awareness of Asperger’s Syndrome to the forefront in our community and the education sector.
With a Master of Education and a Cert IV in Professional Writing and Editing, Kellie is known for her professionalism and ‘can do’ attitude. She values communication with her clients and prides herself on her accuracy and efficiency.
Kellie’s all-time favourite quote, courtesy of Roald Dahl and via Willy Wonka, is:
We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that. Reverse it.
Being busy is the key to a life well-lived!
Kellie looks forward to discussing your project and supporting you to make your words Just Right.
