Why do you work in your field?
I enjoy reading and editing manuscripts and posters for the Alzehimer’s drug on which I work.
What was the path to your current position?
I completed a BA in English and returned to do my MA in writing after two years of working at an advertising agency. Right out of school I worked as an academic advisor for an online university. A friend mentioned that his company was hiring, and based on the company’s policies and benefits, I decided to change positions. I have been with the company for over four years.
What do you think is the most common misperception about editing or editors?
I’m not aware of any, actually.
