I've been at Micron Technology and its affiliate MicronCPG for the past 5 years, which converted to a 30 hrs/week contract job just a few months in. I stayed because they kept promising to bring me back as a FTE. Started as a communication strategist for data center flash storage technology and was moved to corporate communications where I ghostwrote blogs, feature articles, tech briefs, white papers, infographics and new web content for: 5G, cloud computing, precision healthcare, gaming memory, mobile, and artificial intelligence. Currently I'm the B2B writer in the new MicronCPG affiliate doing projects like all the white papers, briefs and flyers for the New Why NVMe Storage campaign
DELL IOT & SERVICES: As senior messaging manager for the Internet of Things (IoT) product group which was part of Edge Solutions at Dell I wrote and produced its first webzone, in 18 languages.

As of April 2017, I've been a global Communication Strategist with Micron Technology, based in Boise, where we have some of the smartest communicators creating wonderful technical marketing assets that I then use for branding, product introduction and revenue generation. I'm known for taking technical input and making it a strong marketing asset. Good team, but I'm happier as a FT employee, and they moved me to contracting after a few months and never brought me back on...
At Dell, I was a senior messaging advisor for IOT, which has shifted to EMC. Delivered product messaging, websites, brochures, datasheets, white papers, videos, partner events and collateral and helped with lots of social and digital marketing. I'm also a certified IOT Social Subject Matter Expert, a program I graduated from and helped to run. My first Dell position was as senior marketer and storyteller for Dell Services, the company H.Ross Perot started, now sold to NT Data.
At CSC I worked for the Financial Services Group, which develops software for insurers, banks and investment companies. I co-built the company's first industry-specific blog, was active in the massive Corporate rebranding, and managed media relations. Became a leader in integrated digital marketing, launched the pilot projects in Eloqua. Was the go-to person for new product messaging, and became the defacto product marketing manager for the Banking solutions. The FSG has since been merged with HPE to create DXC.
Whereas CSC was a Fortune 150 company with many software and services to support in Financial Services, my work at Planview was Director of Marketing for one (high-end) software. This small department did it all: lead generation, event management, web design and content, collateral, client stories, thought leadership pieces... I helped Planview achieve 10-20% revenue growth each year and kept us top of mind with industry analysts. ... These four jobs represent decades of experience.
