Over the last 5 years, I have attended the following workshops at AMWA conferences in order to earn my Essential Skills certificate:
Statistics for Medical Writers and Editors
Elements of Medical Terminology
Essential Ethics for Medical Communicators
Establishing Style: Exploring and Developing In-House Guides
Tables and Graphs
Basic Grammar I
Punctuation for Clarity and Style
Essential Skills Certificate
At the AMWA Conference, I participated in the Tweet Away Contest and won Most Retweeted Tweet!
At the AMWA Annual Conference in October 2013, I took the BELS exam for the second time. After studying a bit more than I did the first time I took the exam, and having a better idea of what was expected in the exam, I passed!
I am now a certified Editor in the Life Sciences, hence the ELS after my name.

I was in a podcast about the STC Conference in 2006.
I was in a YouTube video about the STC Conference in 2010.
I use this website to keep track of all of my personal and professional activities. I am pretty active in professional associations (STC and AMWA) as well as other volunteer activities, so this helps me remember all the cool things I do over the course of a year, or two, or three….
So take a look around and see what I have been up to lately!
