Find your passion.
It’s good advice. And it’s advice that I’ve tried to follow. Throughout my life, I’ve had two overriding passions—writing, and helping animals. So I’ve worked to balance the two. Working for nonprofit animal welfare organizations for over a decade has allowed me to not only make a difference in animals’ lives, it’s also allowed me to experience firsthand the positive impact that a group of professionals can have on a community. I’ve learned the value of hard work, high standards, passion, and compassion.
Now it’s time for me to take the valuable lessons I’ve learned in the nonprofit world and apply them to new ventures. An aspiring technical writer and editor, I believe in using my writing skills in order to improve the lives of my community through clear, concise communication and instruction. With one degree in English, I’m about to complete a second degree in Technical Communications. I’m armed with the knowledge, the drive, and the conscientious nature necessary to succeed in the diverse and changing world of technical writing.
