Gale, a Cengage cpmpany
Senior Acquisitions Editor
Farmington Hills, MI
I've worked in the educational publishing industry for over 20 years and held various roles in marketing, sales, business development, product management, and new product development. I often have my head in the clouds building castles in the air, but frequently return to earth with ideas that I turn into products. Currently, I am enjoying conceptualizing, licensing, and creating digital archives of primary source materials. Some of the projects I have worked on include the Associated Press Archives, Women's Issues and Identities, and the Archives of Sexuality & Gender program.
