Deborah Bandy

Deborah Bandy is the copy editor for Aero Crew News, among other endeavors. After a career in commercial advertising and marketing, she joined Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and spent nearly twenty years, first in admissions (where she met ACN publisher Craig, editing his college papers) and later in marketing and communications. Deborah was raised in Central and South America and calls Spanish “her second first language.” She writes, edits and translates in both. Deborah’s next career will take her high into the Andes of Ecuador to finish her novel.
