Since 1988, I’ve supported creatives in corporate communications, fashion design, and book publishing. My current role is at TouchWood Editions as in-house editor; when freelancing, I choose projects that stir my passion—writing and editing primarily for lifestyle, wellness, and not-for-profit publications. I’m most engaged when substantively editing memoirs, self-help, guidebooks, and collections of essays and short stories; when it comes to fiction, stories that explore personal growth and identity most compel me. Collaborating in a busy production environment, thinking about the big picture, and connecting people give me a charge; my ultimate “why” is my belief in communication’s power to change minds, shift culture, and impact the world.
