Heather Hedden

Cengage Learning
Senior Vocabulary Editor
Boston, MA
I am a senior vocabulary editor at Cengage Learning, a position that I held from 1996 to 2004, when the company was the Gale division of Thomson Learning, and to which she returned in early 2014. In the intervening decade, I worked as a taxonomist at various employers and as an independent taxonomy consultant (Hedden Information Management). At Cengage, I manage controlled vocabularies for the indexing and retrieval of research database content and taxonomies for educational products. Additionally I teach online workshops in taxonomy creation through the continuing education program of Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science and am the author of The Accidental Taxonomist (www.accidental-taxonomist.com).
