The technical communication leadership team.
Production Manager, Systems Administrator
Alice has over 30 years of experience in graphic pre-press production, project scheduling, IT systems administration and online digital asset management systems. She has created direct mail, direct-to-physician and direct-to-consumer materials for healthcare, manufacturing, financial and telecom clients. When she’s not keeping our ever-growing stable of Macs, iPhones, iPads and printers up and running, she enjoys spending time with family, including her two boys, her horses Velvet, Preacher and Cutter, and dogs Duke and Chewy. She also enjoys home remodeling, wine tasting, and just about every movie genre except horror. When she retires, she'd like to travel the country and see all its beauty before settling down in a tiny little cottage, on a little plot of ground, with a small garden and chickens and just relax for a while.
Project Manager, Technical Writer
Vicky has over 17 years of experience in project management and product and process documentation. She has a passion for improving the consumer's user experience, which she was able to apply in her earlier career as a retail buyer. During her career, Vicky has been instrumental in developing customer-friendly formats that also reduced the cost of producing instructional literature for her clients. She has also taught a Technical Communications course for apprentices in the building trades and volunteered as an adult literacy tutor. A native of Ohio and a graduate of Miami University, she has enjoyed life in many cities, including Dayton, Chicago, Cleveland (west side, east side and south side!), State College, Pennsylvania, and Maryville, Tennessee, before she, her husband and daughter made Evansville their home. Vicky enjoys family vacations, reading mystery/suspense novels and working puzzles.
Database Manager, Graphic Artist, Illustrator
Julie is a graduate of the University of Evansville with a BS in Art and Associated Study in Math. She has 20 years of experience in the graphic design and production industry, ranging from pre-press, technical literature layout and illustration, technology research and implementation, and database management. Julie enjoys following her son in his numerous activities (sports, scouts, FFA, etc.) and volunteers as the treasurer for his Boy Scout Troop. She, her husband and son have one dog and two cats that keep them entertained. The family also likes to hunt, fish, camp and go to archery tourneys. When Julie's busy schedule slows down, she'd like to get back into bigger archery tourneys (she and her husband competed in a world archery tournament a few years back!) and travel.
