​Without a doubt, technical writing is my superpower which distinguishes me from my peers in IT. In fact, I’m often sought by colleagues and friends for help with technical writing and visual design because of the expertise I gained from both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in technical communication from UHD.​



​The MSTC program led me to positions and professions that opened the doors to my career and interest in higher education. It provided the writing and research skills I used to attain a second master's, and now as I work toward a doctorate. I had great and knowledgeable professors, and I keep in contact with a number of them. They have been helpful in my career and in my pursuit of other dreams.
