Stacia worked as a technical writer for six years in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, in all sorts of industries, including the medical device, pharmaceutical, travel, and hospitality industries, and most recently, e-commerce. She has written everything from sales training materials to manufacturing user guides to system text. Although Stacia studied writing, technology has been her true passion for ten years. She is currently achieving her dream of leaving a mark in new technology by growing into a user interface design position at Digital River. Stacia has already successfully contributed to the redesign of a Web application and will continue working on that redesign project. She is also beginning a large project to overhaul an internal Web application, merging several individual tools into one.
