As the community manager for the Onslow Memorial's blogs -- TummyTime, Cuddlebugs, TweenBeat, RealiTeen and HealthTalk, as well as MomTalk, I'm committed to sharing relevant and timely information that matters to moms. Background: I'm the mom of two sons and have experienced all of the stages of child development. I'm also the co-author of "How to Say It: Marketing With New Media" (Penguin/Prentice Hall 2008). With a masters degree in online education, I'm "wired" to be fascinated with all aspects of listening, sharing and connecting online. I'm especially excited at the positive impact that new media is having on the healthcare industry. I hope you'll use this medium to interact in a new way and in turn become part of a larger community. Please drop me a line and let me know the topics you'd like featured on this site.
