Vanessa Sands has worked as a writer and editor since 1985. She's edited countless articles, reviews, and how-tos on subjects ranging from smart home tech to computers and mobile devices and frequently edits papers on cloud tech and security. She recently assisted a large company with migrating its vast content library into SiteCore and has worked in Joomla, Drupal, proprietary programs, and other content management systems.
In her work as a communications professional, Vanessa helps convey info and ideas in a way that piques interest, maximizes exposure, and ensures readability. This frequently encompasses not only research, writing, editing, and fact-checking, but also graphics selection and editing, search engine optimization (SEO), coding, tagging, and more.
Trained in copywriting for business-to-business advertising and marketing, she has also written about web hosting and design, WordPress, social media, content and email marketing, SEO, and various devices and technologies. She has taught herself website design (HTML, CSS, WordPress theming/coding).
Vanessa received a B.A. in English from Le Moyne College, with a concentration in communications and a minor in psychology.
