Meet Kathy


As the managing editor for multiple global consulting firms and a trade book publisher, Kathy has edited everything from risk management thought leadership to rock and roll books. Known for having high quality standards, she keeps one eye on the details and the other on the big picture. A Grinnell College grad, she’s from Iowa, but Chicago is home. Loves include her husband and dog, travel, literature, storefront theaters, chocolate, golf, and the Cubs.

Kathy is an expert developmental, substantive, line, and copy editor.

In other words, she looks at the content from the macro level (structure and organization) to the micro level (grammar, punctuation, and spelling). In between, the focus is on smoothness, clarity, and flow as well as consistent and precise language. 

In addition to being the Managing Editor of the McKinsey Quarterly for seven years, she's been fortunate to work with some great brands over the years.
