We don’t always see technical communicators in popular culture, much less reality TV. That’s why it’s exciting that this year’s “Survivor” features a technical communicator: Gabriela (Gabby) Pascuzzi!
For Gabby, being on the 37th season of the long-running outdoor survival reality show is an opportunity to use her tech comm skills to “maneuver the social and strategic mechanics of the game.” Gabby has “survived challenges both physical and mental: from a cyclone hitting the island, to living with and attempting to outlast 19 people from different walks of life.”
In her regular life, Gabby is a technical writer at Tenable, the cyber exposure company. She writes user documentation for Nessus, an industry-standard vulnerability assessment solution, and for Tenable.io, part of the Tenable Cyber Exposure Platform. She is passionate about writing with clarity, empathy, and cross-cultural sensitivity. Originally from St. Augustine, FL, Gabby enjoys hiking, watching cooking shows (but never cooking), and adventure-seeking.
What’s more, Gabby will be the guest speaker at the Honors Event on 7 May at the 2019 Technical Communication Summit & Expo, which runs from 4-8 May 2019.
