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. 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, cooking, and spending time with my friends.

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