Dr. Lambert worked as a technical writer and medical editor in industry for 14 years, consulting with ob/gyns, surgeons, endocrinologists, and oncologists. She edited medical textbooks, specialized in composing NIH and NSF grants, and helped faculty in medical schools across the U.S. to research, publish, teach, and communicate more effectively.
After helping other academics, she returned to school so she could pursue her own research interests and teach her own students. She earned her MA in English-Technical Writing from the University of North Texas and then attended Texas Tech University to earn her PhD in English-Technical Communication & Rhetoric with an emphasis in medical rhetoric and new media. Her dissertation, "Patient-to-Patient Communication via Emerging Media: A Virtual Ethnography of Discourse between Women in the Cybercommunity on the Discussion Board of Breastcancer.org," addresses communication between patients as well as the ethics of researching online artifacts and concerns with self-disclosure of HIPAA-protected information.
