As a mid-20's something member of Generation Y, I've been granted the privilege of growing up with the Internet. Looking back, my grasp on technology and creative education has truly been the common thread that has lead to my success in many of my professional experiences (not counting my short stints as an organic farm worker, bartender, and obituary writer).

During my communications degree at Carleton University, I was always finding new ways to make otherwise pretty dry material, fun and exciting. Whether it was shooting videos for Youtube, playing around with the then, brand-new entity known as Facebook, or crafting hilarious blog posts documenting my life away from small-town Alberta, I seemed to be always involved with technology and social media.

A few years later, my after-degree in education at the University of Alberta opened up a whole new world of using technology as a tool for learning and success. Never one to be boring, I won an award for my creative use of Smartboard technology that made elementary mathematics relevant and interactive through real-world problem-solving and hands-on manipulatives. Fast-forward to present-day and rather than fostering the inherent understanding of technology in younger generations, I am now a small business owner helping educate the later generations to make sense of this Facebook, Linkedin, Google+, Youtube, and Twitter-stuff.
