About Me

I am a talented and multi-faceted professional with many skills acquired by daring to take a few trips down those 'roads less traveled.' My work demonstrates creativity, technical savvy and experience in many different types of organizations and companies. After approximately 15 years working in-house, I left the corporate world and became an independent freelancer, consultant, and contractor doing technical writing, instructional design, marcom, and other writing-based projects. Currently I am teaching in-class and online courses in Business Writing. To my delight, I had the opportunity to design and develop the online course from scratch, as well as to facilitate it and work with students in a completely different format. Specialties: Writing for both traditional media and the Internet, networking using digital media, teaching in both corporate and academic environments, designing and presenting materials online.

Experience

Adjunct Instructor, English/Writing

I have been teaching Business Writing at SUNY Brockport for almost 5 years. Most recently I've designed, developed and taught an online course in Business Writing, using Angel as the platform. In addition to working with students on traditional forms and vehicles of communication, every year new modes and media are added to the mix of what business people must use in order to effective in a global marketplace. Just in the past year I have added text messaging and social networking into the curriculum mix. Knowing how to communicate in today's world has become a multi-dimensional process that requires skill in the tools of grammar, organization, tone, and style, as well as the technological savvy of putting these skills to effective use within constantly changing communication modes. My motto for self and students: "You are what you write!"
