When I think of the STC board members I have known, I have always admired their passion for the practice of technical communication and their dedication to serving the society’s membership. Caring commitment to our members sets STC apart from other professional societies.

STC has played an integral role in my development as a technical communicator and a leader. I see the value of STC in providing technical communicators with the tools and opportunities to succeed throughout their career. I would appreciate the opportunity to take what I have learned and contribute to a STC at the society level.

I always work hard, and I thrive in a collaborative environment. I enjoy the chance to work with new people with different perspectives to brainstorm creative solutions to problems. In general, I strive to engage with my teammates and support the success of the team.

Making strategic plans requires thoughtful decision-making rather than impulsive reactions. I see the value of STC in providing technical communicators the tools and opportunities to succeed throughout their career. I want to see the society continue to deliver on that value for years into the future for technical communicators at all experience levels. My roles as President and, prior to that, treasurer of the Florida chapter have given me a chance to balance the needs of our membership with the realities of managing finances.

I hope that I can provide insight into the goals and expectations of young technical communicators.
