How I Got Into Social Media Training

As a lifelong learner, I began using social media to extend my outreach and connections in 2008, the year I turned 60. Already an experienced and savvy networker, I immediately saw how I could use these skills on Facebook and LinkedIn.

In March of 2010 my manager told me I did a great job explaining social media to our clients. He then asked me if I had ever thought of helping others in my baby boomer age group to understand social media.

That’s the day I figured out what I was supposed to do when I grew up! Less than a year later, I created my business: Boomers’ Social Media Tutor.

I spent a few years ramping up my business while still working at that job. Then in March of 2013 I left the job to work full time as a social media trainer. In this encore career I focus on the social media sites of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest.

My goal is to make social media simple, easy and fun for those who use my services. I like to use social media to:

  • Stay engaged in the lives of people I care about
  • Share my insights and expertise
  • Grow my business
  • Gain more knowledge from experts in diverse fields
  • Most importantly, have fun!

Professional and Personal Background

My core communication and leadership skills stem from my experience in Toastmasters International. I have achieved the Distinguished Toastmaster designation five times. This is the highest level of achievement in Toastmasters and reflects me being a lifelong learner.

Along with my Toastmaster involvement, I am a member of the Alternative Business Networking Group. I facilitate one of their six chapters. I am also actively involved with the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, West Chamber of Commerce Serving Jefferson County, and Entrepreneurs R Us, a business networking group.

Professionally, I belong to the Colorado Women in Social Media and the Social Media Marketing Society.

A native of Wisconsin, I live in the Denver, Colorado, area with my husband. We have two grown daughters. My hobbies include traveling, reading and movies – especially when the stories are based in historical periods that fascinate me.
