Zinnie was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, and graduated from the University of Alberta with a bachelor’s degree in sociology in 2008. She then worked in administration for her local municipal government for six years before starting a family. Zinnie has been passionate about editing for as long as she can remember. As a child she could never understand why finding errors in books or signs (or any written text) both exhilarated and frustrated her at the same time! She’s delighted to be working as Reportex’s document specialist and copy editor, where she gets to do what she loves every single day.
Zinnie currently lives in Beaumont, Alberta, with her husband and three Germaican (Jamaican + German) children. She’s a proud ambivert (google it!), and in her free time she enjoys reading, spending time outdoors (biking, walking, gardening and snowshoeing), listening to music and volunteering at her church.
