Okay, I will be honest: When I enrolled at the Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSUD) as an English major, my concentration was poetry. Yes, poetry. I know what you’re thinking–how does anyone go from poetry to technical writing and editing? Well, the truth is, I was a lousy poet.
Frustrated, I took an introduction to business writing class—and, bingo! I realized that my future writing career was not limited to lackluster haikus or dreary couplets.
After completing my bachelor of arts in English, I transferred to MSUD’s Department of Technical Communication where I earned a bachelor of science–and rewrote an entire industrial meat slicer manual to make meat slicing safer for workers who speak English as a second language.
Four years later, I graduated from the University of Denver with a master of applied science in information and communications technologies. This program explored the complex relationship between print and web-based content, information technology, and business management, along with tradition language and usability research. My master’s thesis analyzed the growing impact of social networking on small businesses.
I am a member of the following professional organizations:
When not writing and editing, I enjoy exploring Chicago with my husband and visiting loved ones throughout Illinois.
