Service Description

Most of my 16 years as a professional editor have been spent in-house or doing freelance work for a major educational publisher. I am known for my high standards and dedication. What I write about or edit matters to me, so I choose opportunities that mesh with my personal ideals and beliefs. For example, while working as an Associate Editor at Holt, Rinehart & Winston (HRW), I campaigned to create the first environmental science textbook specifically for high school education. As a Senior Editor, I oversaw the completion of a comprehensive Holt Environmental Science program. I have also long sought every opportunity to infuse health education in middle school science textbooks and associated educational technology. I am always thrilled to research and write for the Holt Health middle school and high school textbook series and associated CD-ROM and video components.

My interest in creating educational technology came from a desire to meet the needs of students who were not succeeding in the classroom with a traditional textbook. I have listened to teachers and students, read copious articles, done extensive research on specific topics, and participated in national educational events in order to keep my finger on the pulse of the people who will be using the products I help create. I am motivated to make a difference.



Some highlights of my skill set include:

o Excellent project manager: adept at pulling together and overseeing the right people for specific tasks to...
