Idyll Point assists executives and managers to build content organizations that have measurable business impact, and provides content strategists with apprenticeship-style coaching to build the skills needed to provide content strategy leadership to their businesses.
A published author and sought-after, experienced speaker, Andrea brings to every discussion and presentation her nearly 30 years of experience in strategic technical and non-technical content roles across a wide variety of industries. She is also the Program Chair of the UCSC in Silicon Valley certificate in Technical Writing and Communication, and she teaches the program’s courses in human factors, content design, and usability.
When she’s not guiding content leaders or teaching technical writers, Andrea is usually designing and making quilts, kayaking, or walking her dogs–all while binging on podcasts and audio books.
