16 Jun 2014 Meet our newest team member
At Talk Science to Me, our strength comes from the fantastic network of associates whose expertise we draw on to meet our clients’ needs. We’re always adding to that network, but now we’re happy to announce that we’ve just hired our first full-time employee, associate editor Roma Ilnyckyj. Roma will spend the majority of her time copy-editing and proofreading documents for our clients, and we’re excited to have her also help with business development, marketing and communications.
Roma has a bachelor’s degree in English and Chinese and a master’s in language education, and has taken several courses in Douglas College’s professional writing program. Roma is actively involved in the local editing community: she’s pursuing a certificate in editing at SFU and was just elected to sit on the executive of the BC branch of the Editors’ Association of Canada as chair of the programs committee.
Before joining us, Roma had a busy year freelancing as an editor and SEO consultant. She took a month-long break to explore China’s Yunnan province, and now she’s back in Vancouver and jumping right in to various Talk Science projects. Roma’s accurate but efficient editorial eye and her strong commitment to professional development and growth with the company make her a strong addition to our team.
