Peggy’s dream job is to start and lead a real life grammar police force (Shannon will be the first applicant!). It’s natural that she’d want to put her skills to use in technical writing. Assisting others accomplish their goals is 100% Peggy’s comfort zone, and she’s looking forward to the challenges our clients bring her, red pen in hand.

Words of Inspiration

“While we might feel small, separate, and all alone, our people have never been more tightly tethered.
The question’s not if we will weather this unknown, but how we will weather the unknown together.”

— Amanda Gorman, The Miracle of Morning, Call Us What We Carry
