Summary of Experience
Joanne recently retired from two decades of management consulting, leaving the thrills of travel behind but retaining the part of her job she always loved best: researching, distilling information, and writing.
Joanne's specialties are blog posts, marketing collateral, and articles related to business/technology issues. She also relishes documenting and illustrating business processes and enjoys writing technical training manuals to support new software implementations.
Joanne's interests are in emerging organizational models, sweeping corporate transformation programs, and helping businesses evolve in a rapidly changing landscape.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Chemical Engineering, Master of Engineering

Joanne earned two degrees in Chemical Engineering before beginning her career as a research scientist at a national laboratory, where she was named one of the youngest group leaders in the department.

Lean Management Expert Ratings
To strengthen her business process optimization qualifications, she recently earned a certification in lean management. Her primary interest was in extending the use of lean concepts in back-office operations and in non-manufacturing industries such as insurance.

Projects by Industry
Consumer Goods

For several consumer goods companies, Joanne wrote numerous training documents to support the rollout of new software across multiple operating locations. These documents were written for diverse audiences, spanning shop floor staff, backoffice clerical workers, and corporate executives. The training materials included both detailed system procedures and important context such as new corporate policies, new categories, and new roles and responsibilities.


Because her formal education was technical, Joanne easily digests medical literature, is comfortable with medical terminology, and can translate information for the patient audience to help physicians, dentists and veterinarians enhance their practice websites and establish their reputations with new patients.


I've written a variety of blog posts targeting pet owners, covering such topics as house rabbits and routine veterinary care.


Joanne spent almost two decades in management consulting before semi-retiring to enjoy freelance writing. She provides insights on project management, team collaboration, and effective use of technology to drive competitive advantage.

Projects by Asset Type

As a consultant Joanne's work was published twice in Buyouts Magazine, without payment. The topics covered timely information technology (IT) issues that were crucial to driving post-acquisition growth in the middle market. Her first article highlighted potentially costly issues that her teams brought to light during due diligence. Her second article made a strong case for aggressive cost-cutting by simultaneously outsourcing non-strategic business operations and moving technology to the cloud.

Blog Post

Joanne blogged as a management consultant before retiring, and at Writer Access, she has created blog posts for technology companies, physicians, dentists, veterinarians and various business to consumer businesses.

Projects By Expertise
Technical Writer

As a consultant, Joanne wrote numerous student guides and slide decks describing new business procedures when companies were implementing new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.

Projects by Writing Style

Joanne blogged frequently during her consulting career, and her work was occasionally republished on other sites. She covered such business and technology topics as project management, merger integration, cloud migrations and organizational change management. Some posts were authoritative in tone, like the one excerpted in the following sample.


As a corporate blogger, Joanne varied her writing style. Some blogs are scholarly and authoritative, but some of her posts incorporated an edgier style with a dose of humor and sarcasm. In either case, she tried to provide some meaningful guidance and suggestions for dealing with a specific business issue.
