As an editor I’ve worked on projects ranging from poetry to scientific reports.
No matter what the subject, I approach every project with professionalism and a critical eye. Over five years spent in-house has given me an awareness of the publishing process from start to finish. Recently I’ve had a particular interest in the technological changes in the publishing industry and have shifted my business to incorporate electronic publishing and marketing.

When I’m not editing, I like to spend my time running, belly dancing, and learning about nutrition and food politics.
