Sue Chastain is a former Lifewire writer. She wrote for more than 15 years on a wide range of graphic design, print, and web publishing topics.  She has been involved in software training throughout her career. Through previous employment and participation in online user groups, Chastain found she had a knack for teaching difficult concepts in a way that was easily understood. When she became involved in graphics software, teaching it came naturally. Her success as a freelance online entrepreneur is the result of her strong work ethic and motivation.


Chastain holds an Associate of Science degree in Interior Design Technology from St. Petersburg College in Florida. While studying interior design, she developed an interest in graphics software and found that much of her interior design training could be applied to graphics and design.
