Professional and editorial experience
Authors often think that an editor needs to be an expert in the subject matter of their work. In fact, an educated but non-expert editor can take the perspective of the reader of the finished work, and thus can be enormously helpful in helping you present your ideas clearly. My expertise is in higher education pedagogy, assessment, faculty development, technology and administration, but I can be helpful in a broad range of content areas, including education, sciences and engineering.
In an editing career spanning more than 20 years, I have edited 10 academic books; myriad dissertations and theses; dozens of academic journal manuscripts; four promotion and tenure packages; four accreditation self-studies; and numerous miscellaneous reports, letters and other documents.
