MS Office Suite
In the ever-chaning world of science and technology, I stay plugged-in to modern tools and technologies.
I use a range of technical writing tools to develop content that meet the needs of a variety of audiences. Some of the tools I regularly use are MadCap Flare, FrameMaker, Acrobat, Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Captivate, and Camtasia.
To develop web-based and email communications I apply HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, and JavScript. I use Adobe Creative Suite to produce visually appealing marketing designs. I have used powerful marketing automation tool such as PeopleSoft CRM, Eloqua, and MailChimp to manage prospect database, and develop and implement digital marketing campaigns.
I have a deep interest in understanding the different ways users discover and process information. I use popular software tools to design illustrations, graphics, workflows, and manipulate images to simplify technical information and enhance users’ understanding of the material.
I believe every communications professional must possess basic coding skills to produce content for various platforms. I continuously educate and train myself in various coding and programming languages.
