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.
I have a BA in English from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. I have worked for the Press since 2000.
I joined UNP in the fall of 2018 after receiving a graduate certificate in publishing from the University of Denver. I am an alumna of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, with a BA in Spanish, and the University of Nebraska Omaha, with an MA in Spanish language teaching.
I graduated with a BA in English with a minor in sociology from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in spring 2018, interned with the press just after that, and became the EDP editorial assistant in July of that same year. I am now an assistant project editor at UNP and looking forward to many more years in publishing. Someday I’ll finish writing a novel, but in the meantime I am creating polymer clay earrings and dreaming of getting a dog.
I’m an alumna of the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where I studied English and political science. I received my BA in 2020 and joined UNP the following year. The books that interest me most tend to address topics such as sustainable agriculture, environmental policy, and political behavior.
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 Books cover designer, added book-interior design in 2002, and became senior book designer in 2006.
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 started with the Press in 2003 and handle reprints and the production of paperback editions of previously printed works.
