For more than a decade, veteran photo editor Sandra Eisert has been a mentor, colleague, and now friend. When my book, “Changing The Face of Power: Women in the U.S. Senate,” needed to be designed I called Sandra. As a prominent book editor and designer, I hired her to not only to design the pages, but be a consultant on the entire project.

Sandra also became one of my three main editors on the book and the Smithsonian exhibit of the work.  During my long tour at The Washington Post as their national political staff photojournalist, I have relied on Sandra for professional insight on a constantly evolving media industry.
