I provide both traditional back of the book and embedded indexing
to both publishers and authors. My Bachelor of Science degree includes coursework in several areas: biology, botany, computer
science, earth science, ecology, genetics, geology, medicine, microbiology, mycology, psychology, and plant pathology among
others. I have formal indexing experience in all of these areas. I am a generalist, having studied in both the pre-medicine
and botany programs at the University of Wisconsin. I still enjoy the beauty of Wisconsin from my home in Green Bay.
Additional interests and indexing experience include biographies, cooking, and history. I have a passionate love for
animals and some experience indexing veterinary texts. I have formal education in the martial arts of Aikido, Karate, and
T’ai Chi Chuan. I apply that level of respect and discipline in all areas of my life, including my indexing. As the
Zen saying teaches us, the way we do one thing is the way we do everything. I strive for quality in all areas of my life,
and that attitude will benefit you as my client. I prefer long term relationships that serve both parties equally well although
I’m very happy to work with single authors with exactly the same dedication to excellence.
years of professional experience in the indexing field, I promise a superlative index on time, every time. Your project receives
my full attention, benefitting from my wide scientific background and range of personal interests. Hiring a professional indexer
is a significant investment, as you know, therefore it pays to hire one capable of handing your project in a professional
manner. I am fully comfortable handling large projects in most scientific and medical fields of practice. I will consider
rush jobs so please feel free to ask! My rates are highly competitive and I’m willing to negotiate on a case by case
basis. The end result will be a high quality index at a price that’s fair to both of us.
