Who I Am

I’ve used WordPress since 2006 when I set up my first blog, which, thankfully, is no longer live.

I began my media and marketing career as a (self-taught) print designer. In the 1990s I became fascinated with the web and began to study HTML and CSS and in 2007 I discovered Twitter. In those early days I met great people, most of whom I’m still connected to today.

In 2010, I founded the Memphis, Tennessee WordPress user group, and led it for eight years. I’ve also been an active volunteer with GiveCamp Memphis since its inception in 2008 and am a member of Advertising Federation of Northeast Arkansas.

When I’m not working I enjoy The New York Times crossword puzzles, Wordle, watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball, hanging with extended family, or enjoying a glass of chardonnay on our patio. I live in Jonesboro, Arkansas with Jim, to whom I’ve been married for 35 years, my mother, and our mini Aussiedoodle, Artie. We have two grown daughters.
