Professional Experience

An editor and manager with 30+ years of experience, I ensure that your copy is accurate, concise, clear, and consistent. I’ve worked most in medical editing, though I have broad experience also in business and educational publishing. From my home office, I’ve successfully managed a number of major projects, including the American Cancer Society's premier book for medical practitioners, a medical periodical for which I served as managing editor for 15 years and, in a single year, nearly the entire book list for the American Management Association. Clients include such publishing giants as Little, Brown and Company, MIT Press, Blackwell Science, and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. Having worked extensively from home, I possess the discipline necessary to meet or beat deadlines. In both my remote and on-site corporate work, I’ve developed respectful and enduring relationships with colleagues and clients. If you need a job done quickly, accurately, and exceedingly well, I’m your editor!
