Working as a marketer in publishing is a dream come true for a lifelong book nerd who loves telling people about all of the awesome books they should be reading. There’s nothing more exciting than helping shepherd a book through the publication process and finally being able to see it out in the world, and then helping other readers discover it and love it as much as you do.

I’m a seasoned professional with experience in both traditional and digital marketing. Prior to joining the publishing world, I worked in journalism, and graduated with a degree in writing from Columbia University.

I can be counted on to bring big ideas to the table while still accounting for even the smallest of details, two things that are vital in ensuring the successful launch of a book.

I have a strong digital background, and I wholeheartedly believe that every author can benefit from engaging with the online community of passionate bibliophiles. I have substantial experience in helping debut authors establish their presence online, working with seasoned authors to extend their presence even further, and helping public figures fold their books into their established digital platforms.

I love my books and my authors, and I can’t wait to tell you about them! At least now it’s actually part of my job to do so.
