I'm an editor with 20 years of experience in the publishing industry, multiple New York Times bestsellers, and a National Book Award Finalist. My core categories include memoir/narrative non-fiction, health, self-help/psychology, parenting, cookbooks, and design. I'm the editor of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel, The Boy Kings of Texas, and WILD Habits. I've worked with HGTV designers Libby Langdon and Carter Oosterhouse, Olympic Gold-winning figure skater Brian Boitano, Chef Bruno Serato, and actor Stacy Keach, as well as many doctors, nutritionists, and psychologists. After many years as an acquisitions editor for major publishing houses, I founded my own company so that I could focus on what I love most--working with authors on developing their manuscripts. I now work with publishers, authors, and literary agents as a developmental editor, content editor, book doctor, proposal writer, and ghostwriter. I enjoy working with first-time authors and can help navigate the publishing process. If I choose to work with you, I will be genuinely invested in your book and will not only offer skilled editorial feedback but also reassurance and guidance along the way. I graduated from Princeton University and received my MA in English Literature from Boston College.
