More recently, Peggy has edited materials on a freelance basis for two New Jersey advertising agencies that serve pharmaceutical clients: Cline, Davis & Mann and Beacon Healthcare Communications. She also has written executive summaries of advisory board meetings for a pharmaceutical company.
In addition, Peggy copyedits articles for the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, based at Rutgers University. She edits books for a scholarly publisher and has provided in-house assistance with all phases of book production from manuscript to bound book.
Peggy holds a bachelorÕs degree in psychology from Swarthmore College and a masterÕs degree in education from the University of Bridgeport.
