Through my business, Cascade Indexing, I provide effective, accurate indexes on time for a fair price. An organizer by nature, I attend to details and deadlines and strive to have well-satisfied clients.

I bring a strong background to my indexing, with 35 years as a teacher and librarian and educational experiences that include two master’s degrees and extensive, ongoing training in indexing. My years of teaching give me a unique ability with texts related to education at all levels, children and teens, technology, and cultural diversity. My years of being an “official” student coupled with my approach to living as an inquisitive student give me the needed experience to work with a range of texts that extend from linguistics to self-help, psychology to crafts, computers to travel.

During my first year as an indexer, I had the honor of winning the Purple Pen Award from the Institute of Certified Indexers, an award which reflects my propensity for excellence in indexing. I am also very proud to have a history of outstanding customer service.

Please find client testimonials, samples of indexes, and more information about me and my approach to indexing on my website at cascadeindexing.biz/.

I am eager to create indexes that will add value to your nonfiction and reference books and help your readers discover the information in your books and efficiently locate what they seek.
