#GirlsRock: An interview with actor, director, producer, singer, blogger, and mom Kate Bergeron

I love Instagram. Of all the social media platforms, it’s the one you can really interact with people you might not otherwise. Post a pretty picture – and someone, anyone – might like it. And then you follow them, and they follow you. Sometimes, they’re actors that you admire, too. That’s how actor Kate BergeronContinue reading “#GirlsRock: An interview with actor, director, producer, singer, blogger, and mom Kate Bergeron”

#AtoZChallenge: D is for designer, as in graphic, as in #GirlsRock: An interview with Amber Lorine

#GirlsRock: An Interview with TV Reporter Caroline Vandergriff

I’ve known who news reporter Caroline Vandergriff is for a while. Besides having a cool name, Caroline did a story on a hero of mine, Mildred Meachem.

#GirlsRock: An Interview with Game Developer Carla Kopp

I’ve made up a tabletop game or two in my day. Who hasn’t? My games were good for a round, maybe two. Today’s guest on #GirlsRock does way better than that! Meet Carla Kopp, senior quality assurance test engineer for Synapse Wireless, an Internet technology firm in Huntsville, Ala. So smart, so creative. She hasContinue reading “#GirlsRock: An Interview with Game Developer Carla Kopp”

#GirlsRock: An Interview with PhysAssist Scribes Recruiter Julie Kraemer

Writers come in a load of varieties. There are those of us who blog or those of us who write marketing copy. Others of us watch a ball game, jot stats down profusely, talk to an athlete or two, and tell the story of what happened, and how. Today’s #GirlsRock guest, Julie Kraemer, recruits people to workContinue reading “#GirlsRock: An Interview with PhysAssist Scribes Recruiter Julie Kraemer”
