Marje Nitz

Operations and Content Manager

Marje's first career plan was chemical engineering, until she got to a quarter in college without any writing classes. She promptly changed her major to technical communications. Since then, she's split her career experience writing about software, engineering, and financial systems, and developing content structures for usable websites. Her favorite questions include “Who is the audience?” and “What do they need to know to be successful?”

When not wrangling content or her children, Marje spends time running around Saint Paul and Minneapolis, plays in the dirt when seasonally appropriate for vegetable gardening, and loves having friends over for dinner. She has been known to leak poetry and sometimes stays up too late dancing.
