My quality is evident in repeat business from satisfied clients, and I will bring that quality to your index. I pride myself on indexes that meet your specifications, meet reader needs and expectations, and meet your deadline. With 14 years of experience indexing both books and weekly legal publications, I have the experience for your project.
My background includes a law degree (JD) and a psychology degree (BS) as well as graduate level coursework in psychology. I have practiced law, been a freelance writer, and worked in both a public community library and a public law library. My library work provides me with first-hand knowledge of how people use indexes, and what works and doesn’t work for readers.
Memberships include the Oregon State Bar Association (inactive status), the American Association of Law Librarians, the WESTPAC chapter of AALL, the American Society for Indexing, the Pacific Northwest Chapter of ASI, and the Legal Indexing Special Interest Group. I volunteer in my indexing chapter, including two terms as secretary, working on the Program Team planning conferences, and writing and editing for the chapter newsletter. I was a founding member and officer of the Legal Indexing Special Interest Group of ASI from inception in 2006 until 2011, and again starting in 2016.
Training in indexing includes Certificates of Completion from both ASI’s Training in Indexing course and from Kari Kells of Index West. I have also attended indexing conferences, meetings, and peer reviews.
Subject specialties are legal, psychology and the social sciences, and education, which comprise the bulk of my indexing work. However, I’ve also done a variety of other subjects, including business, parenting/family, family histories, and health, and am willing to take on any subject where I feel that I can do a good job with the material.
I consider rush jobs if my schedule allows. Pricing depends on the complexity of the book, the subject matter, the schedule, and your needs.
