Veteran Executive/Personal Assistant & Publishing Consultant

I am a veteran Executive and Personal Assistant who has supported high achievers in Government, Medicine, Business, Law, Nonprofits, Arts & Entertainment, and Technology while making significant impressions in Publishing. I have carved a highly specialized niche parachuting into organizations during difficult transitions and supporting leadership at the highest levels. I have gained a lot of experience across many different sectors and among diverse groups of people due to a combination of personal attributes and skills: excellent organizational and time management abilities, the ability to communicate effectively, and being curious enough, by nature, to keep learning, growing, and getting better. CEOs and senior leadership of today need higher caliber assistants who really know them and the mission of their organization and/or groups in order to strategically manage their calendar, and expenses, and to communicate on their behalf. I take great pride in putting the "executive" in Executive Assistance! Writing/Publishing As an undergraduate, I completed a two-year internship in medical science writing and editing at the Enders Research Division of Children’s Hospital (Boston), an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and got my first taste of publicity and my first byline! This experience has served me in all facets of my work history and in launching my consultancy, Eleventh Hour Publishing. From a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Harvard professor to those who struggle with literacy (but find themselves in the spotlight), I have over 15 years of experience in editing (substantive and copyediting) manuscripts, managing and promoting book events, and providing niche support for authors.
