About Me

I graduated with my Master of Arts in Professional Writing from the University of Masschusetts Dartmouth in 2015. I focused my studies on technical communication, particularly how readers can use documents as tools to help them solve problems. I called this idea of creating problem-solving experiences "wordsmithing." I have created different writing samples to show that ethos in action. I have written repair guides for the website iFixit and taught technical communication to undergraduate students at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in the 2014-2015 academic year. I also earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Central Connecticut State University in 2012. I am a motivated professional who can work individually, or on a team, and use my skills to help users solve problems through an attention to detail and an analysis of a situation.

In addition, I'm a member of the Society for Technical Communication, active in the New England Chapter. I have presented how the next generation of technical communicators is being bred through iFixit at the 2015 chapter event "The Coolest Thing I Do: Sharing Tools and Processes", and at a 2017 chapter event called "How Augmented Reality Is Transforming The Ways Companies Create, Sell, Operate, and Service Products" with PTC's Victor Gerdes. I also presented at the Society for Technical Communication's 2014 Summit in Phoenix, Arizona with a progression on the paper I wrote, "Articulating Technical Communicators' Value to Employers". Finally, I wrote an article called Millennials' Outlook on Technical Communication" for the magazine Intercom in October 2016.

I am also active in Toastmasters International. I'm currently a member of Norwood Toastmasters in Norwood, Massachusetts, where I've earned my Competent Communicator award in October 2018 and chaired the club's contest for February 2019.

I'm currently employed at PTC in Boston, Massachusetts. If you have any inquiries, please contact me in the contact webform above. You can also visit my LinkedIn profile and add me to your network.
