After 7+ years as an electrical engineer, I enrolled in law school at Northwestern University. Having little experience with the robust research and writing required of law students, I became frustrated with the general process.
Everything felt ad hoc: copy and pasting to save info, sources becoming mixed or lost, jumbled documents containing bits and pieces from my notes, and no great way to collaborate…
As the years went on and things began shifting into the Digital Age, I noticed people were still improvising when it came to the gathering, annotating, and organizing of work (especially across the internet). This was my a-ha moment…
Tapping into my engineer brain, I tried to remedy the annoying and inefficient aspects of research and writing that haunted me throughout law school and as a practicing attorney.
The first incarnation of PowerNotes was a researcher-focused product to help law students become more efficient and effective in a digital environment. Once we accomplished this goal, we then went after undergrad, and after undergrad into high schools, and after high schools even elementary schools!
Today, PowerNotes is being used by children and adults across all levels of their writing and research journey — from 4th graders just grasping the concept of “research” to veteran researchers with PHDs and working professionals.
PowerNotes has been embraced by over 140 academic institutions nationwide, with some college instructors even building their coursework around the PowerNotes Process!
