How I Am of Service
Over the last decade, I have honed my skills as a passionate community-based researcher, senior policy advisor, organizational consultant, and communications professional.
I have served as an embodied educator, certified teacher, group facilitator, and project manager with diverse individuals and organizations, which has given me a breadth of knowledge and insight into the work that I now offer clients.
Continuing Spirals of Conversation
As a certified and experienced educator, speaker, and workshop facilitator, I strive to make my offerings engaging, light-hearted, creative, and attuned to the diverse needs of the many groups I work with. I have been a member of instructional teams at the post-secondary level for seven years and worked at the elementary and secondary levels both inside and outside the traditional classroom setting.
I have developed skill in translating experiential research into practice in the realms of sustainability, spirituality, and solidarity, and have extensive lived experience in transformational learning, trauma and grief recovery, relational healing, and critical pedagogy. In my speaking and teaching work, I endeavour to co-create knowledge in accountability, trauma-informed wellness, healing with and within place, and Indigenous-settler relationship renewal.
Helping Your Words & Ideas Sparkle
With over a decade of experience writing and editing for diverse clients across academic and professional fields, I bring a wealth of expertise and creative insight to my communication services. An accomplished academic, research and policy professional with several years teaching research design and managing multiple research projects, I love helping other thoughtful leaders bring their message to audiences in the most compelling, polished, and joyful way possible. I am adept at capturing your unique voice, alchemizing your words, and bringing organizational clarity to your ideas.
I work with authors, academics, entrepreneurs, and organizations of all kinds to write, edit, and co-create exceptional, engaging, accessible work. Over the years, I have developed expertise in transforming content and vision into polished, publishable pieces, helping your important ideas reach and expand diverse audiences.
I offer research coaching, comprehensive copy editing, long and short-form article or white paper creation, manuscript support, and more. Working with me brings relief, clarity, inspiration, and fun into the grind of creation. I coach you through each step of your unique process and help you make the vision for your written work a dream come true!

“Aleyah has done a wonderful job creating my new website. She was attentive to my needs and used her creative abilities to design a website that presents my research group in a way that conveys well our ethic and aspirations. Her design style is fresh and engaging and her responsiveness and care in our co-design process was very much appreciated. I warmly and strongly recommend her design and editing services.”
