Tru recently graduated from the Emory University College of Arts and Sciences with a double major in Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology and Computer Science. She also completed the requirements for a minor in Mathematics.
With a teacher as a mother, Tru has viewed the world through an educational scope since she was old enough to read. She was an active peer tutor at her university and worked as a research assistant in a psychology lab that investigated learning in elementary school aged children. Currently, she is worked in curriculum development for a start-up that generates E-learning content to improve the financial literacy of high-school students.
Tru has more than four years of experience as a research assistant / lab technician in a variety of scientific settings, including a biomedical research institute, a language perception laboratory, a child study center, and a neuroscience laboratory. As an engaged student of the sciences, she is constantly reading new scientific publications and staying on top of the latest findings in the literature.
As a student of Computer Science, Tru has extensive experience reading and writing about data and technology. She has taken courses in Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Data Structures & Algorithms, and more that make her well-equipped to address questions about software and software development. As an intern on a software development team at Turner Broadcasting, she effectively developed technological training materials for a non-technical audience, demonstrating her ability to develop content that is both accurate for the expert and understandable for the layman.
Tru has written blog posts for a variety of sources including a local animal shelter, a university's computer science department, and a large technology company, to name a few. She understands that an effective blog post requires adjusting tone for the appropriate audience and using examples to make material engaging and memorable.
As a student of the sciences, Tru is well-equipped to write white paper materials on a variety of topics. Scientific writing requires extensive research, unbreakable logic, and clear, concise explanations of complex ideas. This is exactly the sort of skill set that is necessary to write an effective, persuasive white paper. Further, this is the type of writing that Tru enjoys most.
