Céline Marie Parent

Hello! I was lucky to grow up in a home filled with books. My love of words and my eye for detail was inherited from my mother, who was my mentor and who inspired me to pursue copy editing and indexing. I took over Leewords in 2019 and proudly carry on the family tradition.

I have worked on academic journals, books, websites, manuals, reports, and marketing materials for Canadian, US, and international clients.

When I’m not at my desk, I can be found on the golf course or at the curling club (depending on the season), knitting, writing, or deciding whether today is a good day for a walk or for some strength training.

Thérèse Lee Parent

Thérèse created Leewords after retiring from her much-loved career as a secondary-school English teacher. Her love of language and her appreciation for a well-crafted story drew her to copy editing. Through Leewords, Thérèse worked on scholarly and popular texts in the social sciences and humanities. She edited a wide range of subject matter, from student texts and teacher manuals to cookbooks and how-to guides. Thérèse retired from Leewords in 2019.
