Experienced, full-time freelance indexer providing back-of-the-book indexes, specializing in the physical sciences. Rates are competitive and negotiable, and rush work is considered. I have never missed a deadline, and am accurate in my indexing.
I am a graduate of the UC Berkeley Extension Indexing Theory and Application course and am engaged in continuing education through ASI as well as training with Indexing Partners. With over 15 years in academia, I have had the opportunity to learn a wide variety of subjects in the physical sciences. I have a graduate degree in chemistry and have taught many college-level chemistry courses, including those in organic chemistry. I have also written many teaching lab and standard operating procedures, and am very interested in projects involving technical manuals.
My recent works in indexing include texts on:
• Animal science
• Natural resource systems
• Childhood education
• HVAC systems
In addition to the physical sciences, my long-term interests include mycology, botany/plant medicine, and equine-related subjects. I was a member of the Oregon Mycological Society and would assist with identification and field trips. Similarly, I have studied plant identification (natives to the Pacific Northwest) and plant medicine. My interest in horses is a passion, as I have worked with rescues, have done some training, have two of my own, and am always eager to read (and index!) as much as I can about them.
