    My Expertise

      Area(s) of expertise: Digital Storytelling, Human Media
      Summary of expertise:
      12 time Emmy award video storyteller and G+ Hangout Host for the Veterans United Network, the broadcast channel for Veterans United. I also freelance at KOMU-TV . I was the first journalist to use a Google Plus Hangout on TV and continue to mentor broadcasters and businesses on how to use Google Plus Hangouts to connect with customers face to face. I believe human interaction via webcam is the new layer of Social Media. Subscribe to my blog about Hangouts On Air and join our Human Media Movement. Ask me about Veterans Virtual Tours for our nation's aging and terminally ill veterans. Learn about my upcoming Hangouts at the Veterans United Hangout Hub. Check out our Veterans Stories and how we're enhancing lives for veterans and military families. I run, collect African art and play practical jokes. Don't eat my powdered donuts. I have 2 children, 3 if you count my husband. I've covered the aftermath of the 2004 Tsunami in Sri Lanka and Indonesia as well as Hurricane Katrina. In addition, I've produced documentaries in Vietnam and Guatemala about the world's mobility problem.
