My years as a writer and editor prior to joining Accepted encompassed a wide variety of roles, projects, and subject matter. I have worked on projects as diverse as editing The Handbook of Psychiatry and the Law, serving as project manager/editor for a Prentice-Hall reference text on employee stock ownership plans, and researching and writing book-length market studies. From 1992 through 1997, I worked at the business book publisher Quality Resources, first as acquisitions editor and then as editorial director. These roles immersed me in the business of publishing. In 1998 I began what is, without question, my most important work, admissions consulting at Accepted.com. Ever since, I have been helping Accepted’s clients articulate their ideas, goals, and experiences in thoughtfully crafted graduate application essays. I have worked with clients from all over the world and with re-applicants. Through several business cycles, multiple communication technology developments, and evolving social norms, one constant has been clients’ admission success.
