I am the manager of ATD Press. I pretty much edit anything and everything that anyone sends my way---from books to marketing materials to education products.

Before joining ATD I spent six months working as a copyeditor for a major academic publisher on various academic series. (I edited books covering anthropology, psychology, political science, history, gender studies, you name it, I probably worked on a book about it.) I've also worked as an assistant production editor at a small military history/history/sports press; an editorial assistant at a press that published coffee table-style books; and as a communications assistant in the marketing department at a small, liberal-arts women's college.

In my free time I knit hats for kids, which I sell at a children's clothing store in my hometown.
