Everyone affiliated with Fleming Editorial Services loves the written word. We come to our profession from diverse backgrounds, but we share a commitment to excellence in our craft and to high standards of customer service.
Paula Fleming, Founder
Paula has been a professional writer and editor for over 20 years. During that time, she has edited books and other content for a number of US publishing houses, websites, and other clients as well as authoring instructional and assessment content for several textbook publishers. She also served for four years as manager of content and curriculum for Kaplan. Before transitioning to the publishing and education fields, she earned a master’s degree in European history and a master’s degree in human resources management, and she held a variety of human resources positions. She recently had the opportunity to return to the HR field while continuing to feed her passion for education, joining Normandale Community College as an HR business partner and then returning to Kaplan as a senior HR project manager. She holds the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and Project Management Professional (PMP) certifications. Her love for the written word persists, so she continues to take on freelance projects as time permits.
