I have a bachelor of arts in English Linguistics from Virginia Tech. My post-graduate work has spanned various communication and marketing roles, always including a technological element. I am a tech-savvy, experienced communication professional, and my strongest skills are in writing and editing. In addition, I have a wealth of experience in branding, having managed an entire branding overhaul for an international trade association, including website and logo redesigns. I have also sent trillions of marketing emails, including multifaceted campaigns written in a diagnostic selling framework. And I am about to embark on a new journey - recording books for Audible. Wish me luck!
