Working more than five years in creative media production, Trudie is a publishing enthusiast who earned her B.A. from Marquette University and her M.A. in Writing and Publishing from DePaul. She has experience in copyright law, editorial acquisitions, media project management, photo buying, print production, proofreading, and writing for magazines and the web. Her work has taken her on adventures to such disparate places as an abandoned brewery and lush Long Island wine country—she’s even had dinner with a former president of Costa Rica. She speaks ein bisschen Deutsch and is learning how to sail.
