About This Blog

Posts on this blog typically relate to me and my interests: social media, family, photography, music, travel (the only things I’m truly qualified to write about).

About Me

I’m a full-time working mother of two, am married and living in outside of Washington, DC. I enjoy watching TV and movies, writing bad poetry, sports, politics, photography, and traveling.  I was a neat freak until I had kids. Now I realize that the mess is a part of life and I won’t have a truly clean house again until my kids build me a robot that cleans.

I’m a Senior User Experience Consultant at Aquilent.  I blend the fields of communication, content strategy, and technology. I also love to help others understand how to use social media as part of their marketing strategy. I’ve worked as a government consultant for 15 years.  I earned my MBA from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and a B.S. in Business Administration, from Castleton State College in Vermont.
