MS in Professional Writing Student, Christinne Govereau, Selected as 2020 Judge for the Center for Plain Language

Christinne Govereau, a student in the MS in Professional Writing Program (MSPW), will serve as a judge and evaluator for two programs at the Center for Plain Language in 2020. Christinne will be returning as a judge for the ClearMark awards. Last year, she judged the Digital: Apps and Microsites competition. This year, Christine will also serve an evaluator for the Federal Plain Language Report Card.

In addition to being a part-time MSPW student, Christinne currently works as the senior technical editor for the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), a sub-agency of the US Department of Energy. In her full-time role at EIA, Christinne works with subject matter experts on energy-related forecasts and projections. She also manages a team of two editors, working to oversee all agency communications. She built her career in government communications after 11 years as a stay-at-home parent.  

“I have learned so much about digital content in the MSPW,” writes Christinne. “I also appreciate how well the classes are preparing technical writers for what they will face in the ‘real’ world…the professors at NYU are doing a fantastic job of preparing MSPW students to deliver right out of the gate.”
