About Me

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.

    Interesting…I am an executive, Dad, fascinated by the internet and what people can do with it and have done with it.

    I have a blog too…it’s not this deep kind of blog. I can’t lay my soul bare…not because I don’t want people to see it…because it takes so much out of me in energy and emotion to express it… Looks as if you have been at it for a while (August 2005)…

    I’m interested to learn a little more about you…

    This does take a lot of energy – sometimes I shut down and cant write for a while. Overall it’s pretty therapeutic. There are a lot of things that I still can’t seem to write about – not sure what I am scared of other than coming out of denial :)

    What do I have to lose anyway? I think this is a most excellent topic to blog about. Thanks for inspiring me!

  3. Susan – I’ve been following you on Pinterest…we seem to like a lot of the same things. Somehow I missed your blog! Have now found it and am following! We likely live in the same general vicinity, too. Great to have found you here, too! ;)
