What is a Technical Communicator?
Technical communication is a broad field and includes any form of communication that exhibits one or more of the following characteristics:
Making words dance, sing, and play started as fun for me. Working with businesses, brands, and nonprofit organizations as a writer is not only a dream come true, it is part of my purpose, passion, and work that I enjoy. From building websites to creating comprehensive clear effective communication plans helping others help others is my favorite part of being a technical communicator.
Being a creative drives me on and off the clock. Weekends and evenings are the best time to "Learn and Create." My happy place is brainstorming ways to increase engagement, efficacy, and the bottom line by improving communications. I consider exploring new content platforms an adventure. Testing emerging technology to attract potential clients and deepen relationships with your current clients is a thrill.
Working in customer contact positions for over twenty years across industries for fortune 500 companies as well as NGOs provided exposure to diverse customer groups. These encounters led to a deep respect for how people want to be treated. Fourteen years in integrated marketing communications afforded me the opportunity to shape the new marketing departments for established and new companies interested in authentic brand communications.
Completing my Masters of Arts in English, Technical Communications is equipped me with real world tools to flesh out big ideas. Working on patient and healthcare provider educational resources as a CDC graduate intern has opened my mind to the limitless possibilities of technical communication in UX/UI design and instructional design. Your organization deserves someone passionate about creating clear effective communications aligned with your objectives and valuable to your clients. Your stakeholders want someone working to not only meet but exceed expectations. You found her.
