Overview

I previously worked as an assistant editor at Entangled Publishing, where I was also a proofreader and copy editor. I now work as an editor at Radish Fiction. Previously, I worked as an assistant at Tobias Literary Agency. I've also mentored in writing contests, such as PitchWars. Through those contests, I was able to help several writers secure agents and/or publishing contracts. Some of those writers went on to publish with Candlewick, Scholastic, Harlequin, Little Brown, and Jollyfish Press. I specialize in young adult, middle grade, and adult. I've edited for bestselling authors such as Rachel Harris and Jennifer Shirk.
