About

Hi again!

You already know my name (well, I assume you do since you got here, but in case you don’t, my name is Vangie – like Angie but with a V). I’d like to know yours. Here’s a little bit about me, so we can get to know each other.

My professional life started in Austin, Texas in corporate education, then I became team lead and eventually manager of a public communications team writing and presenting seminars across the state.

From there, I transitioned into higher education, overseeing two-year degree programs. Then I moved to secondary education, administering a $90M education grant for Grades 7-14.

Along the way, I managed statewide projects and programs; wrote and delivered speeches and seminars; wrote federal reports and state rules, regulations, and guidelines; and collaborated across state, federal, and national teams.

Most recently, I’ve run a solopreneur UX writing, writing, research, and editing business, working remotely as a contractor or subcontractor on distributed national and international teams to help clients tell their best story. A few years ago, I added UX/UI design to my portfolio and found my calling.
