Who is Sherry? 

Sherry Loveless is an editor, designer, publisher, and artist with an empathic, curious nature, and an equally curious last name (that very much belies her nature). Growing up, Sherry was an avid equestrian and for over a decade, she trained dressage horses professionally. Her work in photography, design, editing, and publishing began in 2005 after respiratory disease forced her early retirement from professional equestrian sports.

As a graduate student at City University of New York, Hunter College’s Animal Behavior and Conservation Program, she studied anthrozoology, behavioral science, ethics, and welfare with a focus on animals in the food and fashion industries, research, zoos, and sport. This scholarly work reinforced for her the importance of scientific and academic publications in the development of guidelines, policies, and laws that govern the human behavior that impacts our world.

Over the next 15 years, Sherry developed her editorial, production, and publishing industry acumen as her new business, Catsworth Publishing Services, LLC evolved.  Sherry has worked with international, traditional publishers like Cambridge University Press; BioMedCentral/Springer Nature; and Taylor & Francis. Sherry has provided editorial, design, and production services for final deliverables on contracts for: USAID, DoD/DARPA, the White House, Homeland Security, Congress, and NASA. She co-developed and helped run the publishing and production division of a 501(c)(3) science and technology think tank and research institute press.

Sherry’s work has graced the pages of international books and journals, and the walls of universities, galleries, and private homes. She has supported academic authors in preparing and publishing their scholarly work; helped independent authors, leaders, and public figures publish award-winning books; and assisted entrepreneurs by honing and improving their messages and images. 

For more than a decade, academic and entrepreneurial thought leaders have trusted Sherry’s creativity, technical skill, and customized editing and design solutions for expertly-produced, non-fiction publications ranging from books to brochures. Her integrity, appreciation of beauty, and attention to detail and quality assure stylistic execution of her final products. Sherry is a valuable, results-driven professional partner who treats each client and project with respect, appreciation, and care. Her professionalism, interest, sense of humor, discretion, and strong interpersonal skills sustain her work with international authors, publishers, collaborators, and colleagues from a variety of professions, professional levels, and academic and public-interest specialties.

Official Mascot

Tristan is the official Catsworth mascot and office manager. He is always the first one in the office and the last to leave. He spends most of his time making us smile and ensuring that our work is, well, catsworthy! (Anyone who has feline friends can attest to their affinity for sprawling across books or papers.)

What's in a name?

Our cats live in our studio and we wanted our business name to acknowledge them. According to various experts, “worth” is an Old English word meaning “enclosed homestead.” So, in loose terms, “catsworth” means “cathouse.” Given that “Cathouse” would certainly relay the wrong message about our products and services, we chose to go with “Catsworth.”
