For a couple of years I worked for a Christian denomination’s magazine as the Marketing Manager. This provided an area of growth that led to winning an award for the best denominational magazine marketing campaign. While trying something different for awhile was fun, it made me realize how passionate I am about the editorial process. I decided to go back to my roots and work for Penguin Random House.
With 20-plus years now at Penguin Random House, I’ve grown in my skills and helped publish thousands of Christian adult nonfiction, fiction, children’s, YA, and giftable books. I love problem solving, project management, and helping writers reach their dreams of being published authors.
I’ve also freelanced for many publishers and nonprofits, including Cru, Outreach, Colorado Christian University and others. When I'm not working, I'm reading women's contemporary and literary fiction, gardening in my backyard, helping my daughter negotiate middle school, playing fetch with my rescue Staffy mix and GSD, or engaging in other life adventures.
I hope I have the privilege of assisting you whether you’re working on your first book or your next one.
