Taneisha Roby

I'm a socially active progressive committed to social change.

Most recently, I served as the Digital Director of Obama for America in Illinois where I managed all of Illinois' social media accounts and email outreach, preached the virtues of digital storytelling, and trained volunteers to leverage digital tools to improve their communities and help us win. We not only won Illinois by 16%, we helped win the crucial battleground states of Iowa and Wisconsin by 6%.

Empowering people to become leaders in their communities and use technology for community-based change is my passion.

My philosophy: Most of the worlds problems can be solved with a hug, both ehugs and in real life hugs.

I respect data, analytics, coders, and designers. I have a deep desire to learn it all. The most convenient and cost effective way for me to learn it all is Coursera... and YouTube.
