Project Brief

The target audience was career and technical education administrators and educators across the US. The USDE commissioned Manhattan Strategy Group to produce a playbook, toolbox, guide book, data dashboard, and curriculum guides, all based on academic research and data.


CTE administrators and educators needed research-based information for building even more robust student programs in a rapidly evolving environment.

My Role

I served both as a consultant for the target audience (CTE administrators) and as an editor for the project

  • write a project style guide and quick reference sheet aligned with USDE guidelines
  • ensure all deliverables were approachable and accessible and spoke to the target audience, translating complex academic text into approachable language
  • enhance presentation materials
  • edit all reports and deliverables
  • moderate regional conferences
