As the leader of PSC’s editing staff, Becky uses her eagle eyes to ensure that the firm’s products sparkle, shine, and reflect the best of PSC’s whip-smart staff. She strongly believes in the power of messaging to achieve amazing things. She also believes that editors should be informed yet open-minded language lovers rather than severe prescriptivists—an attitude that serves her well when conducting her favorite job task, delivering personalized writing workshops to consultants.

As senior editor, Becky authored the first-ever PSC Style Manual, which she regularly updates to orient all new staff and ensure top quality of the firm’s written work. In her role, she also manages the production queue, oversees internal and external editing staff, supports marketing and communications work, and more.

Becky brings to PSC more than a decade of award-winning experience in journalism, editing, and creative writing—she got her professional start as a 16-year-old high-school junior, when a blind query sent to a music magazine jumpstarted her freelancing career. Since then, she has written and edited for countless newspapers, companies, and publications, from McGraw-Hill Education to the Cult, author Chuck Palahniuk’s (Fight Club) official website.
