What I Do

My name is Angela Lee Sherman (I go by Asher, for short). I'm  a freelance UX writer and content designer. I bring together user research and branding strategy to produce powerful content, digital copy, and in-app text that speaks to the right audiences.

Formerly, I was a college admissions consultant and editor/translator. My transition into UX was propelled by an appetite for creative expression and new beginnings. In mid 2020, I completed UX Writing Fundamentals, a certification course by UX Writer's Collective, as well as UX Writing Academy by UX Writing Hub. Since then, I've been applying my skills to projects with nonprofits, small businesses, and individual clients.
