Hi, Diane! I'm Jim. When I see a spider, I scream like a six year old girl...?...oops, wrong list.

I'm sitting in my office looking out across a campus that is lined with palm trees that are swaying in the ocean breeze. The warm summer sun has baked the afternoon to a toasty 81 degrees. Wait a minute, it's not summer!

Actually, I'm trying to remember all of the things that I have done as a tech writer. Hope this helps, Melissa:

Created report templates

Authored context-sensitive online documentation

Wrote test scripts and test cases

Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) compliance reporting

Mapped SOX requirements to network and system controls

Created and maintained IT Change Management policies and procedures

Developed baseline training materials

Wrote product fact sheets, case studies, FAQs, technical overviews, and best practices guides.
