I am a mom, executive, daughter, sister, pet-lover, friend, neighbor, nature enthusiast, and geek just trying to figure out my path.
The digital age opened many doors for those committed to making change happen in ways never before imaginable. The walls have come down, people are connecting with each other, and the power of community is beginning to really change the way we organize, learn, communicate, share, and create.
I love learning about how people are using the online tools in unique ways to make a difference, be innovative, create community, connect with each other, have fun, improve their lives, and make the world a better place.
In 1994, while working at a scientific organization, I launched my first website, along with several online journals and databases. I have been fascinated with the Internet ever since. My background includes a mix of magazine and journal publishing, web development and design, Internet and new media strategy, communications, as well as overall information technology strategy and management. All that said, I can pretty much do anything if I put my mind to it.
More than anything, I am on a mission to spend my time on things that are meaningful, creative, make a positive impact in the world around me.
Whether it is helping someone learn and grow, working with organizations to use technology and the Internet to achieve their mission, or writing about inspiring things - I believe that we all have a responsibility every day to make our time here really matter. After all, with each new day we have yet another opportunity to get it right.
