My career in writing and editing began while writing technical standard operating procedures and quality control documents for a small manufacturing company in Ohio. While completing degrees in technology at Kent State University, I wrote training modules for the College of Technology and taught an engineering drawing lab where my writing and drawing skills and attention to detail were further honed. I was employed in a department at Kent State University where I was responsible for writing and editing department manuals, newsletters, brochures, flyers, and I designed and managed the department website.
At Warren Wilson College, I wrote and edited a variety of publications within the departments of Academic Affairs, Student Life, and Academic Support. Aside from designing and writing newsletters, brochures, flyers and other print publications, I wrote and edited booklets, manuals, and handbooks, for print and online publication, which included the Faculty Academic Advising Manual, Student Handbook, New Student and Parent Orientation booklet, A Wilson Tutor's Handbook, the Academic Support Crew Manual and Academic Support Crew Handbook.

I use a holistic approach when coaching clients. While improving academic and organizatinal performance requires improving upon skills in time management, organization, planning, setting goals, and establishing better study strategies, often there are prohibitive factors that make it difficult for students or clients to manage their academic, work, and personal worlds simultaneously. By offering a space where clients can identify barriers to their success or better understand how they learn best, they are empowered to make the necessary changes for improved academic and daily performance. Clients are provided with life-long tools, strategies, and information that supports their discovery of what it means to be academically and personally successful.
