What do I do when I’m not writing stories? I’m managing online communities for customers who quite literally save lives. Their own stories amaze me every day, while to them, they’re just doing their jobs. I’m happy to share my experiences and help others manage, nurture, and grow their online communities, because I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today without being helped along the way.

I’m also a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) [Updated 2018: Year 3!] for Office Apps & Services. It’s an award I’m both humbled and honored to receive.

I’ve learned several online community platforms from the ground up, and always have an eye out for what’s next. Currently I work with Yammer networks, both internal and external, and that means I work with some fabulous people.
