I have a Master’s of Arts in Leadership and worked in universities for over 16 years doing event management, human resources, recruitment communications, student recruitment events, social media and international education. I was drawn to starting a blog as I love to write and connect with people for the purposes of sharing experiences, helping each other and building communities of practice in life. In addition to Powered by Mom, I am a social media and community manager and work part time in a Human Resources department. Like many of you I’m a busy mama and gal who has varied interests but the things most important to me are my family, education in all forms, our health, animal advocacy (adopt don’t shop) and doing what we can to help our planet Earth. My blog is is about connecting, sharing and building community.
