Kerri Landis is a project manager/editor who collaborates with Rebecca, Charlie, Lisa, and our authors to create compelling and informative content for Caslon’s books and websites. Kerri enjoys the entire editorial process—from finding a good idea to copy editing to checking printer proofs—but is especially fond of keeping the plates spinning as everything comes together. Kerri believes that anyone can learn anything with enough motivation and the right teacher, and helping to send well-written books chock-full of useful information into the world is her small contribution to learners everywhere. She holds a B.A. in English from Ursinus College.
Lisa Green (Finance/MIS) is responsible for the day-to-day management of Caslon processes. Lisa provides strategic and operational leadership whilst also supporting the publishing staff to be more productive.
