Leigh Ann has had three-years of experience in a Biology Ph.D. program and completed a Master's degree. Her educational experience involved many opportunities to write technical documents including research protocols, grant proposals, and a Master's thesis. She has been the primary author for three publication-quality documents. Her undergraduate research project was published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Most of her graduate courses included essay-style exams and written assignments, which further honed her writing skills. Additionally, she taught six unique courses aimed at audiences from children to college students. She feels confident in being able to relay technical information to lay audiences if desired. One of the most relevant courses she taught involved being a proposal reviewer and editor for college seniors' National Science Foundation-style research proposals. She also taught writing mechanics and fundamentals to students to successfully submit proposals and relay their ideas in a concise and accurate manner.
Aside from her academic background, Leigh Ann has been writing for as long as she was able, keeping a journal through most of her adolescence and writing poetry in her spare time. Her experience makes her versatile as a technical writer, creative writer and blogger.
