Editing, writing, proofreading
Serena has edited and proofread for Island Tides for the last fourteen years.
After completing her Bachelor of Science (Waterloo) and Master of Environmental Design (Calgary) degrees, she and her husband moved to Pender Island, where she started working part-time for Island Tides. And so began her passion of working with words.
She continues her education daily through the raising of her two small sons (the most momentous learning experience she has undertaken so far).
