Overview

I lived and worked in New York City at Fairchild Books, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing for four years. I developed and edited manuscripts and acquired proposals for the prominent fashion and interior design book publisher including the new edition of Sustainable Fashion and Brand/Story. I have fundamental experience with working with authors and doing photo research for the best seller, Who’s Who in Fashion. I wrote marketing copy for the website, catalogs and back covers. In addition, I managed the peer-review of proposals and manuscripts for new titles and new editions.

I moved to Colorado and currently work as a communications specialist at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. I write articles for CU Anschutz Today, a weekly newsletter. I work to source photographs for stories and I staff video and photo shoots. I love to read and work with writers. It's important to me to beat deadlines and I'm always the last one to look at a project because I have a knack for finding and correcting a typo or mistake.

Kiley was a dream to work with. This was my first novel and my first time hiring an editor. She was an excellent communicator, patient and went above and beyond for my project. You won't be disappointed!
