A native of Lincoln and graduate of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, I first came to UNP as a freelance copyeditor. I joined the in-house staff in 2003, and in 2007 was named senior project editor and manager of the Editorial, Design, and Production department. Every day in publishing is unique, just like every other day in publishing.
With a BA of journalism in hand, I put off starting a career until I spent a few seasons living and working in Yellowstone National Park and Alaska. I’ve been freelancing as a copyeditor and proofreader since 1997 and have worked at UNP since 2002.
I have a BA in English from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. I have worked for the Press since 2000.
I grew up in rural northeast Ohio and have an MA in literature from the University of Arizona and an MFA in nonfiction from The Ohio State University. I’m working on a book of essays, and I enjoy recording terrible piano covers.
I earned my BA in history from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, where I was especially interested in studying medieval women writers. After graduation I returned to my home state of Nebraska and soon after began working at the Press.
I worked as a graphic designer in New York for ten years, and was graphic design director for Hixon Design Consultants from 1987 to 1991. I started at UNP in 1994 as marketing designer and Bison Book cover designer, added book-interior design in 2002, and became senior book designer in 2006. I’ve been honored to win the AAUP Book, Jacket, and Journal Show for interior and cover design in 1994, 1996, 1997, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2014.
I grew up in small northeast Nebraska town. I received a degree in commercial art and have been a book designer at the Press since 1992. I have designed close to one thousand book covers and more than three hundred interiors, covering everything from military history to poetry.
I began book design work in 1999 with an internship learning from Richard Eckersley at the University of Nebraska Press. After studying abroad at the Santa Reparata Graphic Studio in Florence, Italy, I worked in advertising and newspapers from Denver to Vail to Los Angeles. I returned to Nebraska in 2009 to do what I always wanted: design books.
I joined the Press as a typesetter in 2013 and now serve on the design team. I have a MA in new arts journalism from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Some of my favorite books published by UNP are from the “American Transnationalism: Perspectives from the Sheldon Museum of Art” series. My favorite color, in design and otherwise, is Pantone 2230 C.
I have a BA in English from Nebraska Wesleyan University and MA in English from the University of Iowa. I started at UNP as secretary to the director, later becoming assistant production manager, which I have done for more than thirty years. I have attended numerous national and regional meetings at which I have shared the latest information and learned from my colleagues in the field.
I started with the Press in 2003 and handle reprints and the production of paperback editions of previously printed works.
Originally from Lincoln, I earned my degree in multimedia from the University of Nebraska–Kearney and joined the Press in 2017. I enjoy the great outdoors and consider myself a plant enthusiast and avid Husker football fan.
In 2016 I received my BJ in English and advertising & public relations from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. The following year I joined UNP. My favorite books include Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell and Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. I also really love succulents and currently own a Madagascar dragon tree.
