About the Indexer
I’m a lifelong reader, and a former reference librarian and book cataloger. My many years at a public library reference desk taught me a lot about how people seek information, and I’ve applied that knowledge to creating indexes that anticipate the needs of the reader. I am a generalist with a broad knowledge base.
I have formal training in indexing and hold a B.A. in English and a Masters (M.L.I.S.) in Library and Information Science. As a member of the American Society for Indexing, I participate in continuing education webinars, regional and national conferences, and online discussion forums with other indexers. I am currently serving on the board of the American Society for Indexing as Secretary.
A well-crafted index conveys to the reader that the information in a book has value and is worth locating. Let me read and analyze your text to discern important terms, synonyms, and concepts, and then connect them in a logical, coherent way so your readers can find what they need!
