I was born in Malaysia and moved to the United States to study. I received my BA and MA in English from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. After interning at the Press, I was hired as the first Journals assistant editor and soon after promoted to Journals manager. I have served on both the AUP’s Diversity Task Force Committee and the Program Committee, and on the SSP Membership Committee. I have also chaired the AUP Scholarly Journals Committee and presented at the annual AUP meeting.
I joined the Journals Department in spring 2018 after earning my PhD in English from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Prior to my role as project coordinator, I worked on several major editing projects for various university departments, gained experience in writing program and learning community administration, and taught upper- and lower-level college literature and composition courses.
I came to the University of Nebraska Press after fourteen years as head bookkeeper at a major furniture store and eight years as an accountant at an after-market automotive manufacturing plant. I now wear three different hats while working with human resources/payroll, Journal fulfillment, and royalty processing.
I joined the University of Nebraska Press in 2004 after stints in marketing management, market research, and product development for a number of manufacturing and service businesses. I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with BSBA and MBA degrees and doctoral-level coursework in marketing, and I have taught marketing and management courses at Southeast Community College.
I earned an Associate’s Degree in Visual Publications from Southeast Community College in 2004. I started my University of Nebraska–Lincoln career in 2005 in the Agronomy & Horticulture Department and I moved to UNL Print Services in 2006. In 2016 I began working as a graphic designer/compositor with UNP.
I completed my MA in English at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. After working as a student for UNP’s Journals, IT, and EDP Departments, I joined the Journals Department full time in 2009. As a member of the AUP Journals Committee in 2014–15, I organized an annual meeting panel on how an XML workflow increases electronic content distribution possibilities.
