As the founder of Muse Literary, an independent publisher that represents diverse and emerging authors, I combine my passion for literature with my expertise in international business and strategy. I have an MBA from the University of Chicago and a BS in Business Administration and Management from Elmhurst University, where I honed my skills in negotiation, marketing, and leadership. With over thirty years of experience, I have established strong relationships with business leaders, editors, and publishers, and secured multiple deals and awards for my clients. I also mentor aspiring writers and participate in various literary events and organizations. My mission is to amplify the voices and stories of our world, and support a diverse literary landscape.
