Online communications, including blogging and social media, is my area of expertise. In my time at Maine Family Planning, I lead the successful development of a new website, maineteenhealth.org, and a Q&A text line designed specifically for teens. I am in the process of leading the agency through a name/logo change and rebranding process. Check out mainefamilyplanning.org to see our new look!
