As director I oversee all aspects of the University of Nebraska Press, making certain that the Press is fulfilling its mission to the university, the state of Nebraska, its authors, and its other constituencies. In the last five years, with the acquisition of Potomac Books and the collaboration with the Jewish Publication Society, the Press has grown to become one of the largest university presses in the U.S. I came to the Press in 2009 from Northwestern University Press, where I had been the CFO and associate director before becoming director in 2002. Prior to that, I was the marketing director at the Jewish Publication Society. I hold an MBA from the University of Toronto and a BA from Rutgers University.
I work with contracts, permissions, and subsidiary rights for all our imprints. I have been working with the Press since 2010. I graduated with a BA in history from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 2006.
I earned an MA in social sciences from the University of Chicago. I began my publishing career in 1997 in UNP’s marketing department. In 2005 I moved into grants and development. I am grateful that my job connects me with books, ideas, and bright, interesting people.
