Many indexers have a rich and varied former life, and here is a sampling of hers.
After completing a B.A. in Anthropology at New York University, she took time off to travel in Europe, and to live on a kibbutz in Israel, where she also studied archaeology and worked on excavations. Upon Naomi’s return to the United States, she completed an MA in Anthropology with Specialization in Conservation of Ethnographic Materials at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. and Smithsonian Institute. She worked in conservation of ethnographic objects the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, as well as in textile conservations at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and at the Hebrew Union College Skirball Museum.
After another traveling stint overseas in Europe, the Middle East and East Africa, Naomi worked in customer service at Computerland Corporate headquarters, and served in the Peace Corps on the island of Granada in the Eastern Caribbean.
While working in the Humboldt County Public Library, she shelved a book on best jobs for the 90s, discovered indexing. After completing the USDA Graduate School’s Basic Indexing course, fifteen years ago she hung out her indexer shingle. Naomi–- now located on the Coastal Bend in south Texas– indexes both scholarly and trade books for many of the university and trade presses, and, these days, is usually hired directly by authors.
As a generalist and Naomi enjoys indexing a wide variety of subjects from architecture to transmedia; Buddhism to Moroccan Islam; civil rights activism to copyright law; immigration rights to gender studies; economics to Medieval art of banqueting; Jewish histories of the Holocaust to Spanish films, and so forth as well as books requiring multi-indexes that may include Biblical passages and Ancient sources. In short–this dedicated indexer loves her job!
