Experience

Summary

I taught special education for many years before finding my way to managing one of the largest most active professional learning communities for educators. In my current role, I create virtual and in-person opportunities for people to connect.

Interests

What I read

I read a lot of blogs about community management, full-time RVing, urban farming, sustainable lifestyles, and educational technology. The books and magazines I read are generally on those same topics, with a bit of architecture and design thrown in.

Side projects

I'm on the board of a small non-profit org devoted to serving at risk youth. I volunteer time doing social media campaigns to communicate with potential donors.
