Kathleen McCarthy, managing editor + senior VP

Kathleen McCarthy is the managing editor and senior VP of The Inkandescent Group, LLC.

A freelance editor and writer in the mental health field for more than two decades, Kathleen enjoys riding the publication arc—the beginning of every issue is a fresh start, and the end of every issue brings a completed publication.

With Be Inkandescent magazine publisher Hope Katz Gibbs, she organizes and plans each issue of the online business publications, edits each issue, and is co-author of the company’s first Inkandescent Rulebook — “PR Rules: The Playbook.”

Kathleen also handles the editing, design, and layout for the monthly online newsletter of the American Mental Health Counselors Association. Before becoming a freelance editor, Kathleen worked for several nonprofit associations, including the American Psychological Association, the National Association of College and University Business Officers, and the American Association for Engineering Education.

A deadline fanatic, she is zealous about the virtues of the serial comma and admires writers who can translate dense topics into artful prose.
