Making a career of career awareness
Author and publisher Diane Lindsey Reeves has devoted her publishing career to helping students of all ages figure out what they want to be when they grow up. Over time, she wrote and/or produced over a hundred titles with publishers that include Cherry Lake Publishing, Facts On File, Zondervan, Prentice Hall, Sourcebooks, and Films for the Humanities. She also worked on a variety of custom publishing projects with clients that included the National Association of Manufacturers, Associated General Contractors, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the United States Department of Education.
She founded Bright Futures Press to provide a home for the distinctive career exploration products she creates with a variety of educational publishers. The company provides career-focused content that provide high-energy, high-interest, and always interactive career exploration experiences for students. The company’s current focus is on the middle grade years (4-7) as a means to encourage early career-awareness that prepares students to take full advantage of CTE and other and career-readiness opportunities in middle school, high school, and beyond.
Bright Futures Press books spark real world curiosity and fuel active career exploration. They engage students in early career exploration that broadens horizons and leads to well-informed decision-making in regards to course selection, postsecondary options, and personal career ambitions.
