never thought I would be in this situation. I've always "known" that I
was a strong person and that no matter what I would be OK. But I never

I have been in Print Publishing for over 20 years. Started out working for a Pre-Press company in Union as Print Production Assistant , then went to work for one of their clients in NYC, a magazine publisher.
My first position was Print Production Coordinator for 3
years, then I was promoted to Production Manager, and a couple of years
after that to Production Director. My department created/layed-out the classified pages and special sections for more than 12 magazines. So I'm used to deadlines and craziness!

I am a loyal, hard-working, dedicated and creative person with a lot to offer! Please
share this with anyone who might be able to help, or if you have any
constructive suggestions, please send them my way. I would be very
I have a resume and references available to anyone interested.
