After starting my career in education and moving into business operations, my answer to the question - what do you want to be when you grow up ? - has changed more times than I can count.

I currently work as a Multimedia Manager for Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois. For over a year, I wrote a weekly column on social media and technology for nonprofits at the DonorDreams Blog. I was also a guest writer for I am happy to share my love of all things tech with people.

If you are looking for someone to help you come up with a social media strategy or don't know where to start when it comes to this information superhighway, please contact me at one of the sites below and I'd be more than happy to help you. I recently started the Elgin Social Media Meetup, where people who work with social media in Elgin, IL can network and learn from each other.

When I am not sitting in front of the computer, I enjoy playing board games, eating, cooking, and spending time with my friends.

My life is constantly changing. Visit any of these sites to keep up with my journey.
