Connecting Technical Communication and Accessibility

A good lesson, video, or podcast gets a message across, but the best lesson, video, or podcast gets the message across to everyone who needs it.

My work experience, education, and personal interests have all contributed to my skills as a technical communicator with inclusion in mind. My professional background is varied but centers around technical communication. My graduate degree focuses on instructional technology and design. Finally, I am an advocate of inclusive design and accessibility and am seeking ways to serve more fully in that area.

I have enjoyed a myriad of opportunities: I began my professional experience as an actuary but moved on to editing, writing, and instructional design. I have also enjoyed the challenges of being a Peace Corps Volunteer and a cruise ship purser. I live in the progressive little city of Berea, Kentucky, and currently work as a technical editor and instructional designer.
