As a developmental editor specializing in all things parenting, I work with writers to transform ideas into world-class content that engages the reader. I also coach authors on the publishing process and create content for women leaders. Clients include BabyCenter, Sunset Books, Callisto Media, VIA magazine, Stanford University, TechCrunch, and Silicon Valley women executives.
At the world's largest parenting website, which reaches 50 million users, I won two Digital Health Awards and led content initiatives on topics such as healthy recipes, breastfeeding, maternal depression, nursery design and safety, and bed-wetting. Sponsored content on solids that I wrote ranked in the top 10 articles the month it launched.
I created books for brands such as Pottery Barn, Hallmark, and Gymboree, managing all editorial aspects from concept through release. I launched book programs for Parenting and Working Mother magazines and developed Gymboree's first app. I collaborated with editors, designers, art directors, and production, marketing, and sales teams. For each title, I hired and managed freelance editors, writers, copy editors, proofreaders, and fact-checkers.
