One special partner for 25+ years

Congratulations to our partner Ruth Wilson on becoming the first member of WCEA’s 25-year club! Joining in the fall of 1998 when the partnership was only six years old, Ruth is now WCEA’s longest-serving partner.

For the last quarter century, Ruth has brought more than her amazing editing chops to the table. She has also brought her fun-loving and kind nature, wicked sense of humour, sharp thinking, savvy money management skills, and so much more (the Advent calendar she created for our blog is a recent example of her many talents). WCEA’s longevity, supportive and professional culture, and stellar reputation with clients and fellow editors alike are thanks in large part to her contributions and stewardship over the years. It’s hard to imagine WCEA without her.

Fortunately, we don’t have to! Ruth continues to blaze an impressive professional trail for WCEA, our clients, and our editing community. And if ever a situation calls for a haiku or limerick to lighten the mood, she’s the person to call.

Thanks, Ruth, for everything. Here’s to 25 great years—and counting!

  2. What a marvellous tribute to a marvellous person. Congratulations on this special anniversary, Ruth! Wishing you many more years of doing what you do so well with WCEA.

    1. Great to hear from you, Dawn. And I’m pleased that Santa’s quiz provided a few minutes of fun for you — we all need a few distractions in our busy lives!

  3. Congratulations on this milestone, Ruth! As one of my first mentors and instructors at the SFU Editing and Publishing Program (it was night school back then in the early 2000s), you will always have a special place in my editorial world. Wishing you many more happy years doing what you love.

    1. Thanks so much, Arlene. And you turned out to be one of my star students! It’s very gratifying to witness learners become peers. Happy Holidays!
