Lisa McLellan

I am a Senior Development Editor at Ohlinger Studios. I got my start in educational publishing in 1996 as a marketing assistant at Addison Wesley in the Computer Science and Engineering Publishing Group. In 1997, I moved to Longman Publishers as the editorial assistant to the Director of Development. There, I fell in love with content development. I was a development editor at Pearson Education from 1998 to 2016, working primarily in the social sciences. I have launched several successful first editions, including The Sociology Project by Jeff Manza and the faculty of the NYU sociology department—which was named Product of the Year at Pearson in 2013—and The Dynamic Child by Frank Manis, a digital child development program.

I am passionate about education and educational technology and love working with authors to transform their ideas and content into effective learning tools for today’s students. I have experience developing narrative content, assessments, videos, interactive learning activities, and data visualizations.

I hold an M.S. in Journalism from Boston University and a B.A. in English from Bucknell University. I am an avid runner who lives south of Boston with my husband and four children.
