Overview


I love helping people write books! I've been a developmental editor and collaborator for the past 15 years, supporting numerous authors through every stage of the book writing process. My authors have published titles with Harper Collins, ABRAMS, Simon & Schuster, and Rodale. My joy is to create books that will help people live better lives. My authors have written books on topics spanning every aspect of wellness and self-improvement from mind to body to spirit. I have supported many acclaimed wellness experts with their book projects including fitness guru Tracy Anderson, lifestyle and motherhood influencer Hilaria Baldwin, elite life coach Ariane de Bonvoisin, and sustainability expert Josh Dorfman.

I am also co-author of The First 40 Days: The Essential Art of Nourishing the New Mother and its follow-up titles, Awakening Fertility: The Essential Art of Preparing for Pregnancy and Nine Golden Months: The Essential Art of Nurturing the Mother-to-Be (ABRAMS).
