I have the most fun in my role as the community strategist for our social learning Jive Software community that we call The Hive.
As a student my focus was on Knowledge Management / Social Learning. I am particularly interested in ways that individuals and organizations can use social learning/networking platforms to facilitate knowledge sharing.
For most of my career I have worked in the software/tech industry working within the higher education industry (higher education administrative software and academic and research library software). I consider myself a technology translator who sits between the techies and the end-user.
My most important job is being a mom of two wonderful young boys who keep me very busy. My MSLOC Capstone research focused on work-life balance and managing the boundaries between work and family. In particular, I compared job satisfaction, work-life balance satisfaction and family satisfaction levels between part-time working mothers and full-time working mothers.

This week's Tip of the Week comes from +Jaana Nyström, a Google+ Top Contributor in the Google+ Help community.
There's so much great content on Google+, but what's a good way to save and view posts and articles later?
Start a very secret and private community.
- Members: You + your Pages as moderators, that way all the entities you own can share to the community.
- Use: Bookmarking, Saving data (posts) from Google+ and elsewhere.
- Categories: Use the categories in the Community to help you categorize saved posts and bookmarks.
- Benefits: All pages (members) can save posts in one place, inside Google+. Re-sharing is easy between pages and profile. Also works from tablets and mobile phones!
Note: When you share a post to your private community, there are three ways to do it: Regular sharing via the Share arrow button, left clicking the posts' timestamp and copy and pasting the URL of the post as a link, or using a +1 button on any website and sharing directly to the Community.
