My day is successful when I can efficiently deliver content to clients that is effective, helpful, and easy to understand. I enjoy helping technical people communicate, whether in technical articles and tutorials, blogs, marketing content, product documentation, or user interfaces.
Here's my story:
More than 14 years experience writing and editing technical content, with a background in journalism as a reporter and copy editor. I originally came to IBM as part of the Rational Software acquisition in 2003 and worked for product documentation/information development teams. In June 2018, I joined the IBM Developer team as an acquisition editor for Cloud computing content on developer.ibm.com.
When I am not working, you might find me in the back yard reading in a hammock with my cat at my feet, riding a tandem mountain bike on dirt roads with my husband, or volunteering for affordable housing and human services in my community, in the long recovery phase after devastating Colorado floods in 2013. I write weekly and monthly columns in local newspapers about affordable housing solutions, and I serve on the Town of Lyons Human Services and Aging Commission.
