“For all the fancy engineers on my team, the person who adds the most value to our product is our copywriter -- she connects the product to people in a way technology can't."

From class clown to content design

I joke sometimes that clown classes at Cornell set me up for a career in tech. (Except it’s totally not a joke.)

Here's how studying shakespeare put me on the path to UX writing.

I've always loved words (words, words...)

In the acting and directing classes I devoured, I’d debate the meanings of punctuation marks, single words, and ambiguous phrases.

To me, Hours spent finding hidden meanings are hours well-spent.

As a theatre director, i'm all about the aesthetic

I’ve always loved design just as much as performance. I’ve created worlds for the stage from wacky to beautiful:

MAGICAL ZOOS, TIME-TRAVELING MUSEUM EXHIBITS, AND ELEGANT, HIGH-FEMME FANTASTYLANDS.

(All in a day’s work.) 😝

When I found my career in UX Writing, it all clicked

Now I get to ask the same kind of deep dive questions every day in my work at Intuit and with my clients. I distill complex concepts into simple,  remarkably fresh language.

I build worlds that are charming, helpful, and kind from end to end.
