I began as a writer and editor of scholarly publishing content for Editage Insights. Given my passion for scholarly publishing, the experience helped me satisfy my curiosity about the industry and learn more about how researchers navigate each step of their journey. I also got to work on visual formats - infographics, slide decks, videos - all of made sure I kept my creative thinking cap on at all times. I love that my current role as global community manager gives me great opprotunities to have memorable conversations with researchers and publication professionals across the globe. It also drives me to think at a deeper level about building a stronger and more well-knit community of people passionate about communicating the best research to the world.

In my previous role as an academic editor at Editage, I gained a first-hand understanding of the publication needs of and challenges faced by authors. While at work, I find myself exploring newer ways to communicate ideas and connect with authors globally. Outside work, you will find me fawning over my cats (I have two!) and being indecisive about which comic book or research paper to read or which superhero movie or series to watch.
