Eileen Neary returned to PSG in September of 2013. As an intern in the fall of 2012, she was highly motivated while working on a variety of tasks, including writing blogs, checking and tracking art, and working with marketing materials. Hardworking and proactive, Eileen was welcomed back by the team as an assistant project manager. With a bachelor of fine arts in Writing, Literature & Publishing from Emerson College, Eileen was excited to put her degree to use in the publishing industry.

Now a junior project manager, Eileen’s tasks include helping with project launches, updating budgets, transferring files, supporting and coordinating freelancers, meeting with clients and generally ensuring that all aspects of a project run smoothly. Having worked on a variety of projects, Eileen is familiar with many steps in the educational publishing process: from working in content management systems to following the latest changes in assessments to fact-checking manuscript. Some of her favorite projects have included:

  • developing an ELA vocabulary glossary for ELL students grades 3–11
  • fact-checking science textbook for grades K–5
  • templating ELA lesson plans for grades 6–8

In addition to her duties as a junior project manager, Eileen also manages PSG’s blog. She maintains the schedule, researches and approves topics, and (time permitting) adds something she has written herself. Eileen also works closely with each semester’s interns as an internship supervisor.

A published writer, Eileen has had poetry and short fiction appear in several journals and magazines. She loves to read as much as she loves to write, and her favorite novel is Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier. Eileen has embraced this international best seller’s prevalent philosophy: internal reflection intensifies outward exploration. She argues that this is why writers make the best explorers.

When not at PSG, Eileen likes to spend time exploring wilderness trails with her pit bull, Nova. Her personality and love of the written word make Eileen a perfect fit here at PSG.
