About Jennifer Bertucci

Jennifer (Jen) Bertucci started her career at Elsevier while she was still in college, working as an assistant in the Production department. She assisted project managers with a variety of publishing duties. It was in that position where she discovered her love of the publishing industry, and she accepted a full-time job out of college as a project manager/production editor in the Production department at Elsevier. She edited health-related reference and college-level manuscripts, coordinated efforts of authors, vendors, compositors, and designers to produce quality books and electronic ancillaries, and managed multiple complex schedules and projects.

After almost three years in that position, she chose to move into the Editorial department at Elsevier, which is where she spent the remainder of her career at Elsevier. She managed multiple projects, including both print and electronic, from pre-contract stage through publication, serving as the primary contact for authors, contributors, subject matter experts, and reviewers, as well as created deadlines and schedules for pre-revision reviews, interior and cover designs, manuscript editing/updating, art rendering, production and composition of page proofs, and marketing materials to successfully and effectively promote books and their ancillaries to the market. In June 2015, Jen chose to leave her corporate career and work as an independent contractor. Since then, Jen has taken on a variety of projects related to publishing, and thoroughly enjoys the flexibility of being an independent contractor through Points Group.

Jen is a creative, organized professional with over 16 years of experience in project management, editing, marketing, publishing, scheduling, managing relationships, production, budgeting, and development of manuscript, projects, ancillary development, curriculum mapping, and web content. Her favorite type of projects involve creating PowerPoint slides/ancillary materials for a product suite, as well as anything that involves developmental editing. 

On a personal note, Jen lives in Ballwin, MO, which is a suburb in the West County region of St. Louis, Missouri, and she has three young, wild, ACTIVE children: Gabriella (Gabby), 10; Dominic, 8.5; and Maxwell (Max), 5.5. She loves to compete in half-marathons (recent PR: 1:20:12) and marathons (last year’s Boston marathon: 3:09:28), and often obsessively plans her entire life around an intricately planned training schedule. She is admittedly Type A, and loves a good to-do list (but not as much as she loves crossing things off said to-do list). She also is a personal trainer (certified by the NASM) and trains part-time at a local gym – Burn Boot Camp in Manchester, Missouri. Her kids do every sport under the sun, often on multiple teams per season, so her Google calendar usually looks like a color-coded jigsaw puzzle.
