She began her career at Conde-Nast Publications, following her mentor, Steven T. Florio (who went on to become CEO of Conde-Nast,) as a junior assistant at Vogue magazine where she returned for three consecutive summers.

After graduation, SR worked as a Literary Associate at The Atlantic Monthly as a reader for Poetry Editor Peter Davidson and Fiction Editor C. Michael Curtis, where she was a researcher and literary associate. Note that Ranson helped form The Atlantic Online in the early-90s long before any literary magazines were popular online. 

Since then, Ranson has worked in literary publishing at both magazines and book publishing houses large and small and founded the highly successful imprint Lumen Editions, a press devoted to publishing first-time authors and works in translation. Editorial Director and Founder, Ranson published all of her works in matt-laminate paper-back, earning each a full New York Times book review (which was said could not be done at the time). This and Lumen and Ranson's quite rise through publishing earned her the moniker the "enfant terrible" of publishing (Publishers Weekly).
