Meghan Jezewski

Meghan Jezewski is a freelance editor, researcher, and data nerd. She was a coordinator at the Vancouver Island Public Interest Research Group until leaving to manage data for a local candidate in the last federal election. She worked as a frontline social worker for eight years, most recently at AIDS Vancouver Island, before burning out and escaping into academia. She has an MA in Human and Social Development. Her thesis was on deafness as multiplicity.

Before social work, Meghan participated in several editorial collectives and worked as the editor of ThirdSpace. Meghan joined Interrobang because of the many years of unhatched dreams of publication littering her imagination; sharing the load with others and external deadlines seems to be the way to go.
