My dog, in her own words:
"Hi, I'm Tala. I'm an Australian cattle dog/pit bull mix who lives in Washington, DC with my mom. She's the social media lady; I just chase squirrels and request belly rubs."
When Tala isn't "herding" our family, which she loves to do, she is at my feet when I am consulting with clients or searching Pinterest for dinner ideas.
I was an editor for three decades at various publications in Connecticut, New York, Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington, DC, but I went freelance when my son was an infant.
Little by little, I transitioned away from journalism to social media when I saw how it combined writing, photography, community, and other things I'm passionate about.
I love working with all kinds of people to help them get the most out of social media. My clients have been restaurateurs, writers, small business owners, real estate agents, authors, photographers, musicians, choreographers and people in many other fields.
Working together with these lovely folks, I've learned quite a bit over the years about how to make social media fun and useful.
