Kim Kanski launched her career in business editing when she asked herself the question: “What do I want to do for the next 20-25 years?” She knew she didn’t want to be working long hours teaching yoga, which was her previous job.

After graduating from our training programs, Kim focused on business editing. Working with business communications proved to be financially and professionally rewarding.
