Torrey Podmajersky helps teams solve business and customer problems using UX content. She has written inclusive and accessible consumer and professional experiences for Google, OfferUp, Xbox, Microsoft account, Windows apps, privacy, and Microsoft education. Torreyâs high-intensity speaking style was refined in the crucible of teaching chemistry, but even her most engaging lectures no longer require eye protection. She blogs on Medium, and shares ideas on LinkedIn. She co-created the UX Writing Fundamentals curriculum for Seattleâs School of Visual Concepts, teaching there since 2016. Torrey has a Bachelor's degree in Physics from UW, a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction from Seattle University, and has done freelance fiction writing, home health care work, foster parenting, high-power rocketry, marketing communications, designed the Pilda Pill Sorter, and taught high-school science for nine years. Torreyâs range of experience helps her empathize with a broad range of people, and she brings that empathy to her products and her teams.
