This website is about working virtually, and the life that comes with it. I have taught online since 2000, and have enjoyed the benefits of working from home and around the world but have also experienced the frustrations of distance. Here you will find an opportunity to learn from my experiences of teaching online while traveling, the tech tools used to make it work, and the strategies I employ to excel in my career.

In addition to teaching, I am an author, consultant, and business coach. I write and coach on using social media effectively, steps to working remotely, and strategies for seeking faculty positions in higher education. Together with my husband, Stan, I own Ross and Sons Publishing, which publishes digital manuscripts in the business and self-help genres.
