Senior Digital Publishing Coordinator

Background

Originally from metro Detroit, I received my BA in English with a creative writing emphasis from Hope College in 2010, followed by a move to Boston where I received my MA in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College in 2014. During my time in Michigan and on the east coast, I've held internships and positions with Sleeping Bear Press, The Good Men Project, Emerson College, Pearson North America, and The MIT Press.

Responsibilities

My work in Michigan Publishing Services involves managing production for titles in our in-house imprints, for distributed clients, and for journals in our OA-only program, from manuscript delivery to finished print and digital product; digital conversion for books and journals; and client, author, and vendor communication and relations. I also serve on Publishing's Ebook Accessibility Task Force, the Digital Scholarship Service Team, and as the chair of Publishing's Social Committee.
