Kendra Millis Kendra Millis began indexing in 2008, after completing the course offered through the UC-Berkeley Extension program. Her educational background is in Russian/Slavic languages and literature as well as social philosophy. She indexes books covering a broad range of subjects. She has served on the Board of Directors for ASI, is a Past President of the organization, and currently serves as the chair of the Publications committee.

Dr. Katharina Munk, a trained biologist, has worked since 1992 as a lecturer, author, editor, and indexer on large projects in biology and medicine. She initiated and has been closely involved in the development of Index Manager (Idx) since its inception. The first version of Index Manager was presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2012. Index Manager is now available from Klarso GmbH and is open to your suggestions and requests for additional features.

Do Mi Stauber is the author of Facing the Text: Content and Structure in Book Indexing, a Wilson Award winner, and a popular presenter on indexing. She has been using Macrex for thirty years. Do Mi assisted Gale Rhoades with technical support and documentation and is the creator of the Mastering Macrex introductory videos on Youtube. She continues to enjoy discovering new ways to use this powerful program.

In 1988, Maria Sullivan began her indexing career in the in-house indexing department at a large legal publishing house. One of her first assignments was to review indexing software trial packages. That was Maria’s introduction to CINDEX™ and she’s never looked back. She quickly became in-house “key user” and since becoming an independent indexer in the 1990s, has been providing support through Indexing Research whenever indexers need help. Maria and her husband Ed are recent transplants to Western Massachusetts; and while not indexing and gardening, Maria keeps very busy retrieving, converting, and parsing existing indexes and data for use in index and other applications.

Pilar Wyman has been writing indexes as a successful freelancer for over 30 years. She works in English, Spanish, and French in health, medicine, technology, and other areas of interest. She gives presentations and training sessions as time allows. In addition to working as Chief Indexer & Consultant of Wyman Indexing, she also now works for Index-Manager as Regional Sales Manager, USA/Canada.
