About our presenters
Beth Chargin is a UX writer for the QuickBooks family at Intuit. Her favorite punctuation mark is the semi-colon. She is thrilled that her personality matches Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham in the Downton Abbey personality quiz.
Jeffrey Maramba is a UX writer in the Small Business Group at Intuit. He gets cranky when asked to write something on the spot, but he can usually be bribed with dark chocolate.
Gwen McLean is a UX writer for the Small Business Group at Intuit. She’s loved the nuance of language ever since she was 8, when her mother told her there was a difference between being “nice” and being “kind.” Her favorite Instagram account is The Dogist.
