Blogger | UI / Web Designer

My passion is the written word, and I am inspired by various subjects.  Conceptually, AboveStatic.com is about living above the fray and choosing to evolve without nonsense.  I  enjoy exploring various topics such as trends in education, health, psychology, social issues, human interest stories, parenting and more.  Some posts are a commentary and others are research-based. I also have a long history in web design and enjoy creating clean, attractive, and intuitive websites and graphics.

Professional History

My professional experiences are in writing, web design, education and training, account management and more. I currently work as a freelance writer and create marketing content for different clients. Recently, as a contributing writer at The Bolton Independent, I covered local education and human interest stories.  For many years, I owned a Web Design company, BoldHost, Inc., where I concentrated on design/development and maintenance across different industries, as well as creating e-fundraising sites and campaigns.  Prior to that, I spent years as a Regional Director, and subsequently a consultant, for educational learning centers in Northern Virginia.  My key roles were working with clients; leading, managing, training and motivating employees in sales and management; performance analysis and quality control.  Other professional experiences include teaching and direct marketing.  I graduated from Gettysburg College with a degree in Psychology & Education.

Advocacy & Volunteer Efforts

As a strong advocate for children and education, I spent five years as an elected parent representative for our public school’s council.  There I served as an advisor to the principal regarding communication, safety, school improvement plans, survey development and analysis, while also advocating for parents and students on issues as they arose.  Additionally, I am a co-founder of Nashoba Food Allergy Education & Awareness [NFAE].  At NFAE, I  worked directly with school administration to promote food allergy awareness and co-write the Nashoba Regional School District Food Allergy Policy.

Off the Clock

I live in the Pittsburgh Area and am mom to three wonderful kids — tween twin girls and an teenage boy.  Our family relocated a few years ago from Massachusetts, and previously, Northern Virginia. We enjoy reading, writing, technology, art, hiking, kayaking and the great outdoors.
