I didn’t start out in technology and social media. In fact, I was one of those people who absolutely refused to get Facebook when it first came out. I was doing just fine with AIM to connect and chat with my friends. I didn’t see the point. At the time, I was a music teacher heading back to school to get my master’s degree in higher education, and I had no background in technology. I received a graduate assistantship working with one of my favorite instructors who was just assigned to teach online. I was thrown into this new concept of online learning, and we partnered with a group in Bulgaria on an international grant. I had to learn about building online classes, web design, and globalization FAST. So I enrolled in a few extra classes, bought some books on HTML, and away we went!

I’ve worked in higher ed for almost 10 years now managing online classes, social media, and the website for my college, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I have found my calling in teaching the ins and outs of technology and social media. Education is in my blood so I can guarantee that no matter how basic or advanced you are as a social media user, there will be something for you on this site.  From finding the best hashtags that work for your brand, to learning what employers look for on social media usage, to figuring out the best way to organize the apps on your phone for optimal productivity, we’ll talk about it here!

I am a new mom with an active lifestyle and love spending time outdoors. Give me a kayak, golf clubs, hiking shoes, or paddleboard, and I’m happy to lead the way. Fresh air and coffee keep me energized, and my dog keeps me focused on being present to enjoy life as it happens.
