This small nonprofit organization has an important mission: it helps published authors experiencing medical emergencies to get through their financial difficulties. I worked with the board of directors to design both a front-end site for people to learn about the organization and set up the visual structure for a password-protected administrative section on the back end. This system allows for the authors to securely request funding online and for the board to discuss each case and have it documented in the request. I worked with an outside developer to build the site using the Drupal platform.
After a 35-year hiatus and a lot of life lived in between, Ned decided to finish what he’d started: his Ph.D. in Humanities from the University of Washington. I worked with Ned to narrow the scope of his topic, form the structure of his dissertation, and then provided editing of the document until it reached its final, published form.
After more than 20 years doing career coaching and recruiting for a larger firm, Ed Rogan decided to set out on his own. I worked with Ed to get an understanding of how he wanted to present himself to his potential clients, the types of content he would be creating, developed the base copy, and then built a site for him in WordPress. The site deliverable included instructional documentation on how he could add, edit, and delete listings and notes of congratulations to all of his new hires.
For more than three years I have been sharing my knowledge with others by teaching workshops for General Assembly, an adult education organization that teaches people how to break into the tech world. I have done courses on business writing called “Stop Writing Crap!” as well as introductions to Adobe InDesign and WordPress that have resulted in return visitors and even new clients!
