I grew up in Ottawa, Canada. After I graduated high school, I went off to McGill University in Montreal, completing an undergraduate degree in psychology. I then headed west for LA where I completed a graduate degree in psychology at Pepperdine University. While it was nice studying on the beach, I could only take so much of the sun and fun so after graduation I headed back to Canada.
I spent many years practicing psychology in Ottawa, and all the while the social media movement was growing. Of course, I joined Facebook and later on came Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursquare. I decided that I really do love all things related to social media, of getting to have a say in cyberspace. I decided to try my hand in social media marketing. I knew I could help the small business owner (like my dad – my first test case) who didn’t have a great knowledge of Cyberia but who wanted to grow his business online. I knew that I could help the small business owner jump into the virtual world and use the many social networking sites out there to increase his (or her) visability and attract potential customers. So here I am, plugging away.
