Overview

I am an indexer with experience in a wide array of topics including business, marketing, religion, culinary, history, and scholarly work. I have indexed everything from a scholarly piece on public restrooms to contracts and rules books for a professional sports league.

I am a member of American Society for Indexing (ASI) and the past co-coordinator of the Upper Midwest Chapter of ASI. I stay active in the organization in order to keep current on the art of indexing. Because my work is solely in indexing, I am able to spend all of my professional training in that skill area.

I guarantee that you will be happy with the index I create, though I'm proud to say I've never had to make good on that guarantee. Below are a couple of comments from happy customers:

"Never having worked with an indexer before, I was a bit nervous about what it would take to include a back-of-the-book index in a self-published book. Jen answered every query I had with professionalism and clearly laid out the process for me. The result is a comprehensive, cross-referenced and well-edited back-of-the-book index that will help my readers further explore the text and refer back to important points. Jen even suggested a new way reference books, products, and courses outside the book that will further explore readers to the other offerings available." Laura Brandenburg, CBAP How to Become a Business Analyst

"I truly appreciate the work that you did indexing my book, Cognitive Productivity. This required that you work through over 10,000 words, learning many concepts in a short period of time. You were systematic, well organized, thorough, and smart. I am grateful that you took the initiative to reduce cost for me for the next stage of my project. I look forward to working with you on future projects." Best regards, Luc P. Beaudoin, Ph.D (Cognitive Science)
