Marita Bley

I joined Ohlinger Studios in April 2016 as a Managing Editor having managed sociology, anthropology, political science, and psychology products over the past several years.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Communication Studies in 2001 from Boston University. Beginning my publishing career with Thomson Learning soon after graduation, I’ve gone through the ranks of editorial assistant, assistant editor, and development editor, having worked on English composition, literature, developmental English, and college success products, and earning several “First Edition of the Year” and “Revision of the Year” awards. Most recently, I was Senior Content Developer at Cengage Learning for the communication, public speaking, and music disciplines, managing print and digital development.

I live in Wilmington, DE, with my husband and two young sons. I spend as much time as possible outside gardening or inside cooking.
