Editor Feature: Kathleen Firstenberg
Kathleen Firstenberg is the illustrious editor of The Lustre! I met her long ago when our kids were teeny and running around getting in trouble at Mom’s group. She has since moved away from Seattle to California, but thanks to the glorious internet it made almost no difference where editing was concerned.
Kathleen has been editing for 8 years and earned a University of Washington Extension Editing Certificate in 2009. She has written and edited accreditation documents and manuals, and edited content for workandworship.com and the Mars Hill Ballard blog. She has beautified writing of all kinds from term papers, resumes, a policy and procedure manual to the parenting book Inspiring Childhood, Inspiring Life in addition to her fabulous work on The Lustre.
Her thoughts on her career: “I like to edit all kinds of writing, from instruction manuals to novels. I love that I learn a little bit about a wide variety of subjects, such as education, theology, sociology, the medical industry, parenting, mythical creatures, etc. (This is one of the best things about being a freelancer…I know a little about a lot, haha!)”
Kathleen enjoys reading, traveling, relaxing on the beach, and spending time with friends and family. She lives with her husband and two children in Newport Beach, California. (I can also always get her to forward snarky photos on Facebook about grammar and the English language!)
