I have many years’ experience as a tertiary lecturer, teaching communication, social work, education, history of Aotearoa New Zealand and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. These days I live on a farm that looks out over Tauranga harbour, and work from home as a freelance indexer and proofreader. You can see the view from our home in the photos at the top of these pages!
I hold a Master of Arts in Intelligence Analysis, and I am currently completing a Diploma in Proofreading and Editing.
I have worked for well over a decade in a variety of government agencies and large corporates, in the fields of fraud risk and criminal intelligence. These roles primarily involved research, analysis and the writing and editing of reports and policy. I am also a qualified Vet Nurse and run a thriving business teaching horse and dog owners about the science behind behaviour and learning, and how to train their animals.
"Glenys did an absolutely outstanding job on the index for my academic book. She is thoroughly professional and extremely careful in every aspect of her work. I particularly appreciated her attention to te reo Māori and cross-cultural concepts. I hope to work with Glenys again in the future and would recommend her wholeheartedly to writers of both academic and general works."
