Thank you for visiting my portfolio.

My name is Rachel Johnson and technical writing is my passion.

I’ve been working for more than three years in the field and am currently employed by Compass Minerals, where I create training programs from the ground floor. It is exciting work, involving template design as well as research and document creation. I put together policies, manuals, procedures, diagrams, standard work instructions, checklists, tests, and more.

I also worked as a contracted editor for BKA Content. While I was there, I trained new copywriters in their jobs. It was a rewarding experience to coach the writers and to watch their copy improve.

The manuals that I have created are among my favorite projects. I love diving into research and then organizing the information I gather into a manual that answers users’ questions efficiently. It’s especially satisfying to see colleagues benefit from the resources that until recently they made do without.

Yardwork is one of my favorite things to do once the workday is done. Whether I’m planting, weeding, or landscaping, playing in the dirt is my version of therapy.
