Anne Cherney, a Baird Group principal, managed a portion of a large curriculum development project jointly sponsored by a major publishing company and a large educational institution. I was one of the writers under her leadership. And boy, was I lucky!
She was (and remains) an amazing supervisor and expert editor. And, she's a lovely person period (she and I have since become good friends...but I write to you from the perspective of someone who worked for her first).
If she is managing writers under the umbrella of a larger company, she will troubleshoot on your behalf. She is honest, super smart, a kindly constructive supervisor/editor...pretty darn wonderful.
And there you have it.
