Technology

In articles and communications, I’ve written about medical technology, engineering, information technology (IT), and other technical areas.

In help documentation and technical writing, I have written very clear, understandable instructions explaining actions, such as how to use Drupal and light HTML to make blog and website posts and updates for a laboratory’s communications department.

For Science Careers magazine, I wrote about a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute whale researcher’s daily use of his IT background.

Here’s my technical blog for the University of Utah Water Center about one environmental engineer’s work in water analysis and water safety.

Before starting my writing business, I spent nearly three years as a communications strategist at a 4,000-employee diagnostic laboratory that is a nonprofit enterprise of the University of Utah, co-managing a blog and writing for an annual digital magazine covering laboratory automation, robotics, other healthcare technology stories; and human stories in health and science.
