The Helm Publishing office, customer service, and IT are managed by two lovely ladies, Mona and Michelle. Savannah Helm was raised in this business and handles marketing, copy editing, new product selection, and she helps with product development. Savannah and Dollie Parsons are copy editors and initial book reviewers. Dr. Larry Gilbert is our educational curriculum consultant. Kathy King, RD writes tests, edits and publishes book manuscripts, and manages the business.
