As managing editor of the Geological Society's member magazine, GSA Today (circulation 25,000), I coordinate submissions, edit all copy, develop and write short articles, supervise layout, determine pagination and color signature requirements, and ensure printing and delivery. As communications editor for GSA, I also edit, produce, and distribute GSA's e-magazine, GSA Connection, edit GSA's Web site content in coordination with the Webmaster, and write publications- and meetings-related press releases. I began working for GSA as an editorial assistant, during which time I managed and edited several GSA Special Papers and field guides, formatted manuscripts, and maintained and updated the GSA data repository. I was promoted to managing editor in Nov. 2004.
