About Me


I have provided technical writing and editing services – including business process and procedure documentation, training materials for software and mobile app development, and communications and marketing materials – for organizations including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Woodward Inc., Illada LLC, and the City of Fort Collins.

• Creative and Analytical but Process-Oriented: I like to devise new ways to get things accomplished, but also understand the need for consistency in document creation.
• Tech Savvy: a certified Microsoft Office “power-user”, I am also highly proficient with Adobe graphics software and fluent in XML, HTML, and CSS programming languages.
• Collaborative: I enjoy working in a cross functional environment, learning from others and collectively working towards our common goals.
• Thorough: I am a hands-on learner who will actively use and test your products, procedures and existing documentation to familiarize myself with your company and its objectives.
• Efficient: I work hard to complete projects on-time and on-budget with the highest level of technical expertise and professionalism, while maximizing end-user satisfaction.

Your simple and streamlined approach to writing and content management were of great value and benefit to this project. You don’t overthink or complicate your instructions, processes or procedures and that is very valuable for end users. You take an organized approach to content and help teach all of the folks around you. You also are very forward-thinking, ensuring we learn from each project experience and carry those lessons forward. – Peter Cox, Owner, Illada LLC
