About Me

I take great pride in the fact that most of my projects come from repeat clients, who speak very highly of my work. I value my ability to create quality professional indexes, in a timely and affordable manner that add both value and usability to an author’s text.

Much of my work is focused on professional psychology, education, research methods, and geography, along with trade books on self-help, parenting, organization, and mindfulness practices. My list of published indexes includes nearly 900 titles. You can find a sampling of a few of them on this page.

“Extremely detail oriented and always beats her deadline. I give Deanna all of my most difficult handbooks to index.”
