Social media. How it connects people wherever they are and encourages them to contribute ideas in a fun and interesting way.

If I want to know what my friends and family are up to around the world, I go to Facebook.
If you were to choose another profession, what would it be?
I’d take the starring role of Christine Daaé in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. (A girl can dream.)
What’s your favorite type of project to work on?
I love doing focus groups! It’s so interesting to hear what makes employees tick.

Edinburgh, Scotland where my fiancé proposed to me on top of an ancient castle.

Web articles over 1,000 words with NO pictures.

I’d buy my daughter a pony and we’d go riding all day long.
