Heather Stuart

As owner and Communications Specialist at HH Communication Services, I look forward to serving my clients with honesty and integrity. I have been a member of the Editors’ Association of Canada (EAC) since 2003 and am dedicated to professional standards in my work. I have a Master’s degree in Linguistics and both in-house and freelance experience editing, proofreading, and writing. I am also a member of The Word Guild.

Editing experience includes working in the medical, pharmaceutical advertising, marketing, and health education fields. I have also worked on theses and other academic texts, non-profit materials, multimedia presentations, websites, video scripts, and résumés and cover letters. Freelance writing experience includes investigating and writing health-related articles for a local publication as well as writing copy for websites and marketing materials.

When not busy at my desk, I can usually be found enjoying nature with my family. Health and fitness are important to me, and I enjoy running, playing soccer, and boxing.

I look forward to partnering with you and providing the best communication services possible.

"As a Project Manager I have worked with Heather for over 4 years (2 years as a colleague and over 2 years as a client) and during that time I have witnessed her dedication to her work and her skills as a copy editor/proofreader. Her attention to detail when editing, her suggestions for improvements and her commitment to a project have built my confidence in her work. Heather is not only a skilled copy editor but also a friendly and customer service oriented person. Whether Heather is working on a single element project or a multiple element one she understands the client’s needs and constraints and works with you to provide a quality project on time and on budget. I would recommend using Heather’s services to anyone..."

"Heather is a talented editor whose approach goes beyond just words on a page. Heather is not only professional, she is diligent with any task at hand and is dedicated to making sure your written words have an impact on their audience—without typographical or layout errors. I would gladly welcome the opportunity to work with Heather again!"

“The job you did is really great. I am 100 % satisfied. Thanks very much. My resume looks much better now…. For sure, I will be recommending you to any person who asks me for advice on how to improve resumes."

"Heather is a very bright, dedicated person with great insight for great editorial work. She is also an extremely talented on camera person and as a voiceover artist. It was a pleasure working with her at The College of Family Physicians of Canada and I can't wait to see what she accomplishes next."

"I really liked how this cover letter came out. You did a great job. You clearly understood the tone I wanted to achieve.”
