Building Websites and Managing Social Media

So why websites and social media?

Since January 2014 I’ve been the website and social media manager for a local (Mass/RI) non-profit group doing work in Liberia (Love Lights the Way).

It has been an amazing experience for so many reasons.

I’m Going to Africa!

This fall/winter (current estimate is December 2015) I’m going to Liberia, Uganda and Kenya to volunteer at schools, orphanages and community development centers for 6 months!  I’m very excited about this adventure. I plan to go for 6 months, but I would be very thrilled if an interesting and/or paid opportunity came up to stay longer.
