Social Media & Tech Editing

U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (EM)

In my role as a communications consultant, I support the DOE EM’s External Affairs team on their @EMcleanup channel on Twitter and I perform tech edits for communication plans, reports, and presentations. I also write newsletter articles and develop graphics for social outreach on the different clean-up sites’ progress. EM is the largest, federally funded clean-up program for the country. Some of the sites date back to the Manhattan Project. It has been a long program with many layers. I help tell the stories.

DOE EM Graphics/content samples:

This graphic summarizes one of EM’s calendar year 2022 mission and priorities – to begin demolition of the Main Plant Process Building at West Valley in NY. I wrote the story and created the graphics.
Department of Energy Hanford tank farms
This is an example of a “What’s That” series covering a specific tool or equipment that’s used for EM’s cleanup mission. This one is about Hanford site’s tank farms that store nuclear waste.
National Hashtags:  Native American Heritage Month
EM ran a series in November to highlight the work they do with Tribal nations. I created the graphic.

UX Writing / Content Management 

Revamp of the Nimbis Services website:

In my role as Digital Content Editor at Nimbis, I worked on revamping the homepage and writing content for their flagship cloud platform product, the Trusted Silicon Stratus.  Before the new site, the company lacked clear messaging about TSS.  I brought their tagline “Collaborative Computing, Innovation Edge” to the forefront. I also advised on graphic selection and helped with news and feature articles using GitHub.  I used Adobe XD and Figma with a UX Designer.
