Mary Anne is a talented and multi-faceted professional with many skills she acquired by daring to take a few trips down those 'roads less traveled.'
Her work demonstrates creativity, technical savvy and a keen ability to identify and meet customer needs. After 15 years in a corporate environment, she left to become an independent freelancer, consultant, and contractor doing technical writing, instructional design, marketing communications, and other writing-based projects.
As a contract employee for a Lithuanian-based firm in the early 2000's, Mary Anne was on the forefront of developing SEO content for a number of websites. In addition to writing it, she taught it! This firm also offered clients formal training in understanding and using SEO.
Her versatility is evident in the wide-range of subjects she has written about in myriad media including websites, blogs, online instructional design, in-class lesson design, articles, e-books, paper-books and more. The Biography of Christina Aguilera was one work she wrote on contract with noted academic publisher Greenwood, an imprint of ABC-CLIO LLC and she co-authored Retraining the Harness Racehorse among others.
In addition to her writing work, Mary Anne teaches writing courses at a local university.
