I help busy professors have an online presence they’re confident in. Let’s tell your story.

Sharing your research and teaching online helps more people. When people Google your name, can they find what you want them to know about you most?

Your online presence, or digital footprint, is an effective way to

  • Help more people
  • Build a scholarly network
  • Share your articles and publications
  • Engage your students
  • Advocate for funding
  • Meet collaborators
  • Increase awareness of your work
  • Connect with your community
  • Make friends

Create greater impact and reach people around the world with a strong online presence. I’m here to help you along the way with free resources like The Social Academic blog, podcast, and YouTube channel. And, through my one-on-one services.

Not only was she able to give clear direction, with direct explanations behind why choices for my site would be beneficial, she was able to see my vision, and reflect back the value of what I am trying to achieve.”
