I offer writing, editing and data visualization support for grant applications, manuscripts, public-facing documents and more. My consulting services can be tailored to your needs and range from conceptualizing and creating figures from your raw data, to polishing, re-working or providing critical suggestions for your existing figures and text.

Grant applications need to communicate big ideas in a small space. Whether  showcasing preliminary data, explaining your study procedure, or mapping out complex relationships between teams, well-designed figures can help your reviewer understand your project, and ultimately, get excited about your ideas. With over a decade of academic publishing experience and a passion for science communication, I have the skills needed to make your findings more intuitive, memorable and impactful. 

Need some quick tips for improving grant application figures that you are currently working on? Check out this video below!


"Sarah did exceptional work on our CIHR grant that was instrumental to our success (ranked 5th out of 38 grants in our committee - 89th percentile). Sarah's expertise with scientific writing, statistical analysis, and (most importantly) creating figures played a huge role in our success. I have already recommended her to colleagues looking to create exceptional figures and grants, and will continue to do so in the future."

"Sarah Treit did an excellent job assisting me with the preparation of a grant application for the NFRF Transformation Program. She assisted me by designing many of the figures, editing the text, and providing constructive feedback about the proposal. Sarah also made herself readily available to discuss the project and rapidly completed her assigned tasks in a timely and a highly professional manner. I recommend her completely and without any reservations whatsoever."
