Céline Marie Parent

Thérèse’s daughter, Céline Marie, inherited her mother’s love of words and her eye for detail. Céline took over Leewords in 2019 and carries on the family tradition.

Céline has worked on academic journals, websites, manuals, reports, and marketing materials.

When not at her desk, Céline can be found on the golf course, knitting, or deciding whether today is a run day, bike day, or strength-training day.

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.
