There's something super special about a child and his or her doll... especially when they have a connection. My daughter has made a very sweet connection with a new doll that is just like her. #bornjustright  
For years, Jordan has talked about wanting a doll that has a little arm just like her. It started as a topic of discussion when she was four-years-old and realized her American Girl doll didn't loo...

This is a fabulous video about a young man who says it better than I can: "We are different and we have to accept each in that difference." Another awesome example of how we are all #bornjustright .

I'm super proud of my son for digging deeper to raise awareness and understanding about limb differences while he's in middle school. He's working on a very cool class project.
Jordan's brother, Cameron, is super involved in our work with Camp No Limits. This past year was the first time he didn't get a chance to attend the summer camp in Missouri. It looks like he's goin...

I'm so lucky to be a part of a community that pitches in to help kids attend Camp No Limits each year. Right now, we're only $85 away from sending four kids to camp in 2015. Plus, my site, +Born Just Right, is raffling away awesome items for anyone who donates: 
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. We are so excited to start fundraising for 2015! It takes $500 for a child to attend camp. Jordan and her mom are lucky to have the support …

Story
Tagline
Manager of Social Communications/Training @AARP + Founder @bornjustright.com
Introduction
I am passionate about social media and advocacy. In the journalism world, I am the manager of social communications and social training at AARP. I recently joined the team in October 2012 after managing KOMU-TV8's online properties and teach social networking and community at the Missouri School of Journalism. I was a member of the inaugural class of the Reynolds Journalism Institute Fellowship in 2008-09.  I speak on the power of social media in business, journalism, higher ed and non-profit world. I am also passionate about social media and advocacy.

I am a special needs advocate and share my stories and lessons as a parent of a child who was born with a physical difference on Born Just Right. I am married with two kids and a dog. I'm a fan of technology, running, photography and listening to live music with my husband.

If you're interested in hiring me to train your organization on using social tools, or show your organization how the web will change communication internally and externally, just let me know. I also speak to special needs organizations about advocating for your kids and letting parents know we can all work together to get our kids the support they deserve. The connections we make in person and online can go a long way in getting the support you're craving.


Some of my former speaking engagements:
Bragging rights
I help teach social media at a major non-profit and founded an advocacy site for parents of special needs kids. I love the interwebz.
