Professional Background

I have spent the last four years at top US children's book publisher, Scholastic Inc., where I worked on the brand management teams for the worldwide bestselling franchises of both HARRY POTTER and THE HUNGER GAMES, in addition to managing a variety of upcoming book releases, series, and imprints.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?

It helped me break into the competitive publishing world, combining my M&M certificate with my English major in a refreshing and exciting way. I have recently relocated to London to continue my career in book publishing.
