What I Do

My name is Asher Lee Sherman (formerly known as Angela). I'm currently a Content Strategist/Writer in edtech at EAB. I bring together research insights, branding, and strategic planning to produce powerful content, digital copy, and in-app text that speaks to the right audiences. Using my hawk eye for detail and growing UX/content design skills, I seek to solve problems for the user and business. 

In what feels like a previous life, I was a college admissions consultant and editor/translator living in Seoul, South Korea. After 6 years abroad, my transition into UX was propelled by an appetite for challenging, transformative life experiences. 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 continued working on diverse projects across the higher ed, ecommerce, and nonprofit spaces.
