Work experience


January, 2009 – Present (over 9 years)

I work with several university presses, as well as directly with authors. I frequently work with authors whose first language is not English. I consider myself part of the author's team, to help him or her create the best book possible. Previously I worked in-house at several publishing companies as a production editor and copy editor, in medical books, fiction of many kinds, also in crafts and children's books and games.
