Before becoming a professional editor, I earned a PhD in comparative women's history from the Ohio State University, where I was awarded a Presidential Fellowship and a grant from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation for my dissertation on international feminism. (Publications include articles in Feminist Studies and the Journal of Middle Eastern Women's Studies.) I discovered my true calling while still in graduate school when I had the opportunity to work as a managing editor for the Journal of Women's History. That experience led to a position as associate editor for H-Net Reviews, held since 2006, and launched my freelance career. In addition to my work with individual clients around the world and with H-Net, I serve as an editorial consultant for E2Publish. I live in Columbus with my husband and two daughters.
