My role as Communications Manager for a Bay Area mobile technology company keeps me on my toes. Proposals, press releases, social media content, manuals, video scripts -- it's never dull!
Before moving to California, I served nine years as a proposal writer, editor, and manager in the healthcare technology industry, specializing in the creation of digital and print proposals, white papers, and marketing materials for varied audiences both domestic and international. As the years flew by the challenges mounted -- my workplace grew from a company of 800 employees and 118 total RFP projects in 2003 to a corporation of over 3,500 employees serving customers around the world with 245 annual projects in 2011.
Prior to that, I worked as a writer and retail associate in the liquor industry with a strong focus on wine. My current volunteer work as Lead Storyteller for Berkeley Humane in Berkeley, CA includes writing and editing weekly posts to match the organization's vision and goals, collaborating with Berkeley Humane staff, and managing a small team of volunteer writers.
