My publishing training began with internships at Penguin and Avalon Books. I then worked as an assistant at the Vigliano Literary Agency, and an editorial assistant at Kensington Books. The bulk of my industry experience was spent as an editor at Simon & Schuster and, most recently, a senior editor at Other Press. I've acquired and edited literary and genre fiction, narrative nonfiction, and books in translation, many of which have become national and international bestsellers and critically acclaimed award winners (please click on selected projects). I taught the Editorial Process course for the City College of New York’s Publishing Certificate Program and Simon & Schuster’s Publishing 101 Lecture Series. I have a B.A. and M.F.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and am bilingual in English and Spanish.
