I'm a North Carolina native living in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Washington. I'm a graduate of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, with a Bachelor's degree in Communications.

I've lived in the Seattle area for 25 years, working in the tech industry at companies including Microsoft and I've held certifications as a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS).

I'm a technical communicator, UI text creator, content writer, and content publishing specialist with more than 20 years experience with end-user documentation, assistance content, and user interfaces.
