About The Editor:

Do you have prior publishing experience?

I do not, but I am proud to say that Elsevier has been the first publishing company I have worked for.

What’s your history with Elsevier?

I recently celebrated my 10th year at Elsevier, having joined in September 2005 as a contracts assistant.  I then joined the editorial group in 2007 as a developmental editor for the food science program before becoming an Associate Acquisitions Editor for the engineering group in January of this year.

What do you enjoy about signing in this area?

The 3 areas I sign in: aerospace, marine & automotive engineering, are all new to me.  Meeting experts in these esteemed fields and learning about the newest technologies, latest research and being able to publish their work is what I’ve enjoyed the most so far.

Why should this person sign a book with you?

Whether they’re a first-time or returning author, I enjoy collaborating with authors and helping them achieve their goal of publishing.  I want to make their experience with publishing and with Elsevier to be a positive and rewarding one.

Why do you love publishing?

I love being able to work with an author and take their idea through to publication.  Knowing that they are happy with the end result is most satisfying to me.

Tell us something personal about yourself

I like to play and watch tennis and have a bucket list goal to attend the 4 grand slam tournaments.  I also like to cook, watch documentaries, visit art museums around the world, and read.

Engineering brings science and technology out of the lab and into the real world. Often without thinking about it, we engage every day with technology that is the product of careful, precise design and execution by engineers in electronics, optics, and communications; embedded systems; automotive, aerospace, and marine; mechanical; and many other disciplines. For decades, Elsevier has maintained and grown extensive collections in these and other cutting-edge areas, like biomechanics and nanotechnology, through our trusted imprints: Newnes, Academic Press, and Woodhead Publishing. In addition, our powerful online platforms like Knovel and Engineering Village help streamline research and development processes for users around the world.
