Hi Kelly — I have added you as an NEC writer.

Since you are new to Medium, there are two recommendations that I think you should consider for the article that I highlighted.
(1) Find a nice picture to be the lead image for the article and add that to the top (below the title area). If you want, I can find an image for you.
(2) I would recommend breaking most of your paragraphs into two paragraphs. You have long paragraphs and many (not all) Medium readers skim articles and only read the first and maybe last sentences of long paragraphs.

I am looking forward to your submission. — Alan
