I have worked as an acquisitions editor, most recently at an association where I developed books about business, medicine, and pets. I have also been a freelance writer and editor. My personal essays and short stories are published in print and digital publications, and I edited and contributed to an anthology published in 2007. My specialty is developmental editing, and my areas of expertise include business books, memoirs, and fiction for adults and young adults.
