My first job after grad school was Visual Information Specialist at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. The science at NASA was very different from the conventional medical and surgical subjects of my school days and required me to broaden my skills in visual storytelling.

NASA was the perfect training ground for my subsequent work in medical publishing, professional and patient education, and the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Bottom line of what I learned: a picture is most likely to hold the audience's attention long enough to educate them, if the picture is well-designed and beautiful.
