Summary

Managed the content, editing and production of Minnesota Physician, a monthly magazine distributed to all physicians practicing in Minnesota. Edited and fact checked all articles and wrote and organized special features.

Experience

I have over 36 years of experience as an editor. I am an excellent project manager who is able to juggle multiple projects and meet deadlines. I work well independently, but really enjoy collaborating with others especially to improve processes. I am very skilled at editing and rewriting without changing the author's voice. I wrote life science articles for a major revision of Compton's Encyclopedia and articles for Corning Inc.'s employee magazine. I also organized and wrote special features for Minnesota Physician magazine such as "Community Caregivers" and "Health Care Architecture Honor Roll." I am experienced at supervising and training freelance editors and reviewers and evaluating their work. I work well with authors and have often mentored new writers in how to improve their skills. I have worked extensively with Microsoft Office, Adobe InCopy, and Adobe Acrobat. I have experience preparing books and magazines for production. I have worked with many style manuals such as AP and Chicago. I discovered plagiarism in a manuscript before publication, preventing a potential lawsuit.
