I had the pleasure of training and managing Janell in the journal production department of Lawrence Erlbaum Associates. She was one of the quickest studies I’ve ever trained. Janell swiftly absorbed and skillfully applied our departmental procedures, APA style, and typesetting guidelines. She also began sharing her own considerable technical aptitude with the department, guiding us toward our transition to fully electronic delivery of proofs, artwork, and printer-ready files while helping us understand how this would benefit our schedules and workflow.
At LEA, Janell quickly developed into a creative, dedicated, and self-reliant production editor unafraid to take on new challenges or learn new technology and techniques—all vital traits for an independent freelance professional. She continues to apply these traits to her freelance writing and copyediting practice across a diverse range of clients and content. Your projects will benefit from her care and expertise, and I’m as happy to recommend Janell as I am to have worked with her.
