Dan McKeever, Porter Sargent Handbooks' veteran senior editor, has perspired over a lifetime of details during a tenure that has lasted a quarter of a century. He oversees editorial content for the three Porter Sargent titles, The Handbook of Private Schools, Guide to Summer Programs and Guide to Private Special Education. In addition to providing content for www.PrivateSchoolSearch.com, www.SummerProgramSearch.com and the CollegeXpress Summer Program Blog, he recently authored A Historical Examination of Financial Trends in American Boarding Schools: 1935-2010 and College Matriculation Trends: A Look at the Past 50 Years, reports that both draw from our extensive Handbook archives. Both of these papers appear on the Resources & White Papers section of the Carnegie Communications website.
Away from the office, Dan can often be found with a craft beer in hand, and he is a big fan of hockey, independent films, good chocolate (the darker the better) and album rock (the more obscure the better). You can circle Dan on Google+
Leslie (@ProducnQueen) first joined Porter Sargent in 1988, after graduating with a bachelor's degree in English from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. She worked here as an editor for two years before joining the H. W. Wilson Company in Cambridge, MA, as a writer and editor for Readers' Guide Abstracts. In 1996, Leslie returned to Porter Sargent as an editor but transitioned to a production role and today serves as production manager for the Porter Sargent Handbook series: The Handbook of Private Schools, Guide to Private Special Education and Guide to Summer Programs. Her behind-the-scenes database work also supports www.summerprogramsearch.com and www.privateschoolsearch.com—to which she also contributes articles—and she handles the division's social media presence on Facebook and Google+ and tweets for @PSSearch, @PorterSargent and @SummerPgmSearch. Drawing on her varied role at Porter Sargent, Leslie also contributes blog posts to Carnegie Communications' News & and Insights section.
Outside the office, Leslie studies Tai Chi and volunteers for the Art Gallery Committee at Malden Access Television, interviewing artists and writing promotional materials for MATV exhibits. A supporter of local food, she also blogs about food-related topics.
