I had the privilege of doing volunteer work with Doreen for the Society for Technical Communication. I was very impressed with her ability to patiently connect with people at different places on their career path. Each time I interact with Doreen, I learn something new! She’s a wonderful resource for public speaking, career and resume development, and job opportunities.

I have worked with Doreen for over 5 years at Georgia System Operations Corporation. She has served as Technical Writer and QA Analyst for several projects I've managed and she has never failed to produce well-constructed and easy to understand documentation. I know I can depend on her to be an active team member and to support her fellow associates toward the goal of delivering a quality product. She is not afraid to bring innovative ideas to the table as well as doing the necessary research to support those ideas. In the absence of a documentation solution, she found Doc to Help application, learned it and implemented it so that it is now a necessary tool in our environment. Her presentation style is laudable and she has a great knack for connecting with people. I am happy to be contacted as a reference for Doreen.
