My work as a Web Content Strategist and Web Writing trainer stems from my background in communications and journalism, as well as my 22+ years working with web (and gopher!) sites.
My background lets me create a bridge between any organizations' traditional content and its application on the web, and my training classes give students the skills to apply it.
