I currently serve as a production editor at Andrews McMeel Universal. Previously, I worked with the American Public Works Association, where I oversaw the production of print and digital publications—from development and design to print and distribution.

Before becoming a production editor, I worked as a writing consultant at the UMKC Writing Studio and an editorial assistant at New Letters Magazine and The American Educational History Journal. I also served as Blog Editor for the UMKC Women’s Center.

I graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a B.A. in English Language and Rhetoric, and a minor in Manuscript, Print Culture, and Editing.
