Newsletters

My experience working on professional newsletters began in graduate school at the University of Washington. I took a lead role in publishing the annual alumni newsletter for the Department of Technical Communication. Since then, I played a role in developing and publishing online and print newsletters for Merck, Rosetta Biosoftware, Lake Washington Rowing Club, and the UW Professional & Continuing Education (UWPCE).
