I have worked in publishing, editing written works, coordinating publishing projects, and managing websites for more than twenty years. I love to write and edit and truly enjoy the projects I receive from publishers, businesses, and individuals. It’s wonderful to be able to serve a variety of clients and develop relationships with each of them.
My desire to be involved in publishing began at an early age. I served as editor of my fifth-grade yearbook, editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper, managing editor of my college newspaper, and then managing editor at Templeton Press before becoming a freelancer.
For the last eight years, I have worked on a wide range of projects as a freelancer. I have written hundreds of articles on health and medicine for a national website. I have copyedited numerous trade books, academic journals and books, and textbooks and their affiliate products. I have also managed several large-scale permissions projects, ghostwritten books, and completed writing and editing projects for female entrepreneurs.
At Templeton Press, I created book contracts, wrote grants, attended international rights fairs and academic conferences, and managed rights and permissions in addition to working on more than ninety books and several websites.
I received a bachelor of arts in English and expository writing from Ithaca College, where I discovered how much I love reading Jane Austen and writing literary essays.
Beyond my work in publishing, I completed a master’s degree in public administration at Villanova University, where I took courses on strategic planning, organizational communication, budgeting, and decision making. This degree provided me with exposure to the needs of nonprofit organizations and businesses.
I live in the Philadelphia suburbs with my husband and two children. My hobbies include reading, crafting, traveling, and watching sports.
