Holly Pettit has recently been added to the HMIS team as Tech Writer. She has several years’ experience working with the homeless community as well as with substance abuse clients and persons with traumatic brain injury. As a US Army veteran, she has a keen awareness of issues such as PTSD and brain injury which leave veterans at-risk for homelessness. As Tech Writer she hopes to streamline the forms and documentation used by providers. Clear documentation means providers spend less time with paperwork, and more time with their clients.
