Nancy Rynes’ inspirational book, Awakenings from the Light, is the story of her near-death experience and the messages she brought back to share with the world. With wit and insight, Nancy shares her very personal journey from a horrific bicycle accident to her time in “heaven’s green room” and back to her miraculous recovery. I was honored to be Nancy’s book coach and editor on this project.

WestNet Learning Technlogies

WestNet publishes a series of courses that are certified by the National Association
of Communication Systems Engineers (NACSE) and used by accredited colleges and universities. I developed content, including course objectives, course material, activities, and quizzes. Course development includes researching new technologies and working with subject matter experts. I also edited and indexed other authors’ material and worked closely with the editorial staff to produce these high-quality courses.

 

Friends for Phinney

I designed the Friends for Phinney site and developed the content for this non-profit organization for Parkinson’s Disease. I served as the Social Media Director, fundraiser, and media contact during the team’s Coast-to-Coast bicycle tour in 2013.

National Snow and Ice Data Center

NSIDC is a NASA-funded resource for scientists from all over the world to track climate trends. My work included documenting data from recent cryospheric (snow and ice) experiments. I also designed and developed web sites such as Antarctic Megadunes, an educational resource for adults and students who want to keep up with current research.
