"Books let us into their souls
and lay open to us the
secrets of our own."
Although my love for books began at a young age, my journey in trade publishing began in 2011, when I started as an editor at Alfred A. Knopf, one of the foremost literary publishers in New York—and the world—having received degrees from the prestigious Columbia Publishing Course and Harvard University. While at Knopf, I've worked with some of the most talented, visionary, and best-selling artists writing today, among them Patti Smith, Cheryl Strayed, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Jane Smiley, A. S. Byatt, debut novelists Weike Wang and Jana Casale, and others.
In 2017 I switched gears and joined an independent publishing house, The Experiment, where I acquire and edit a range of nonfiction wellness projects, particularly plant-based cookbooks.
If you have a manuscript or other writing project you're looking for feedback on, I also offer professional, personalized freelance editorial and writing services at flexible rates to meet your needs. Whether you're interested in macro- or micro-editing, proposal writing and development, or creative collaboration/cowriting, I can help polish your project so that it greets the world with its brightest shine. My specialities include:
Yoga—asana and philosophy
I also partner with Lisa Weinert Consulting on publishing consultation services beyond editing, which provide writers with guidance and connections to traditional and hybrid publishers, promotional and digital marketing services, custom website design and more.
