Jody Berman, Owner of Berman Editorial
I am a longtime editor based in Boulder, Colorado, who provides content editing, manuscript evaluations, proofreading, and book consulting services. All of my projects — books, articles, websites, proposals, reports, essays, press kits, and more — are approached with dedication and the highest professional standards.
Areas of specialization: line editing of print and electronic content, manuscript evaluations, book development (fiction and nonfiction), writing consulting, proofreading, resume writing.
Content expertise: health/fitness, nutrition, environment, business, natural/organic products, history, popular culture, social sciences, education, cooking, music, spiritual traditions.
Complementing my editing, proofreading, and publishing background is my experience as an event planner, panel facilitator, educator, and manager of projects, people, and organizations. Positions I have held include managing editor of an academic press, environmental consultant, writer, and teacher (specializing in the instruction of gifted/talented students). I maintain a wide network of professional associates (designers, e-book formatters, social media experts, etc.) and enjoy connecting people with mutually beneficial needs.
Affiliations: member, Boulder Media Women; founder, Boulder Editors; board member and past president, The Publishing Pros (formerly RMPPG).

“Jody's superb ability to extract three-quarter-baked, complex technology and economic concepts and produce an in-depth, compelling story is a wonderful gift. Journal articles that Jody organized, drafted, and perfected on my behalf were seminal in positioning me as a thought leader in the intellectual property business.”
