Having been a professional librarian for 11 years, I learned the value of a great index. For more than 21 years, I have been providing thorough, accurate, on-time, back-of-the book indexes for a wide variety of clients. More than 1950 books and 185,000 pages later, I still get excited with each new project. I love the serendipity of indexing all types of books from textbooks about psychology or business, to scholarly books about religion or history, to trade books about sports, travel or hobbies.
I have been indexing and developing controlled vocabularies, thesauri, and taxonomies since 1993 and have been doing freelance back-of-the-book indexing since 2004. I teach workshops on taxonomy creation through ASI (recorded webinar) and Simmons College School of Library & Information Science, and I am a senior vocabulary editor at Cengage Learning. Currently, I am a member of the board of ASI (2015-2018), past-president and vice president of the New England Chapter (2005-2006), past manager of the the Web & Electronic Indexing SIG of ASI (2005-2006), and founding past manager of the Taxonomies & Controlled Vocabularies SIG of ASI (2007-2010). I am author of the books The Accidental Taxonomist, Indexing Specialties: Web Sites, and chapters in Indexing Names and Index It Right, Volume 2.
