Personal Statement

I would like to use my extensive technical experience and training in technical communication and usability.

I graduated, in 2010, with a BS degree in Technical Communication from the HCDE department at the University of Washington.

I have created and run several user research studies while at Microsoft and have been a team member for many usability studies. I have created several websites and have created and tested wire frames and high fidelity prototypes made with HTML, CSS, and Photoshop. I have collected and analyzed qualitative and quantitative responses as well as other metrics in order to create reports and suggestions to improve products. I have also done extensive writing and procedural documentation as well as document management at several positions I have held. I have the ability to translate complex and technical information in a way that is understandable to non-technical audiences.

Prior to going to the university, I worked in the field of industrial motors and controls and have over 10 years experience in industry where I worked on IT including servers, PCs, and network architecture as well as machinery including hydraulics, pneumatics , and electronic controls. I am an expert at troubleshooting and problem solving and am extremely adaptable.
