Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Temporary Employee, 2014 –2015 

I was invited to work in the Boston office while Art Director Melissa Lotfy was on maternity leave. My direct supervisor was Brian Moore (currently with the Morrow Art Group). I designed interiors for General Interest Trade, produced inserts, helped create POD covers, binding dye mechanicals, endpaper selection . . . . At the end of my temporary assignment, Creative Director Becky Saikia-Wilson had me licensed with the Typéfi plugin so that I could work effectively as a contract employee. I was the only freelancer licensed by HMH with the plugin. Chloe Foster Mallozzi, (Director of Design and Production, HarperCollins) trained me in Typéfi, and I have been working with her for the past seven years.
