After earning a Bachelor of Arts in English—and then a safety-net Bachelor of Arts in English-Education—Anna Lee discovered that there are a lot more ways to use an English degree than teaching high school. First, she worked for nearly 10 years in enrollment services at Northwest Nazarene University where she exercised all her communication skills working with traditional, adult, transfer, and international students and finished her graduate certificate in Technical Communication from BSU. She also honed her teaching skills as an adjunct instructor for undergraduate English courses including Improvement of Language Usage, English Composition, and English Grammar and Usage.
Next, she moved into marketing communication. As a marketing content strategist, Lee writes, edits, and manages content for print and web-based publications, including serving as managing editor for the NNU alumni magazine, the Messenger.
Since finishing her Master of Arts in Technical Communication, Lee has focused more on college-level instruction by continuing her 10+ years adjuncting at NNU teaching Technical/Professional Writing and also Introduction to Technical Communication at BSU. She continues to write and manage marketing content, runs a farmers’ market micro business, directs a youth puppet team, and spends time with her husband and three kids.
