Marilyn’s experience and passion for literature means she is able to write, edit, revise, and research information for the guide with ease. During her time earning a technical communication degree Marilyn has taken a good amount of English classes, meaning she is used to setting due dates for long projects such as profiles. While experienced in fixing anything ranging from tractors to solar-powered batteries for electric fences, she has little experience with fixing anything tech related. With this being said, being able to learn how to read instructions and tear something apart and putting it back together again is a very versatile skill. Furthermore, this will allow Marilyn to write the instructions to better fit an audience with average knowledge of technology.
