Supreme Word Goddess of the Universe
For my own amusement, I once registered software as the Supreme Word Goddess of the Universe. After all, I did inherit Gould genome for creating and fixing everything with words. I've kept this grandiose moniker; screens out humorless clients. I rock at all the stuff you'll find listed under Services.
Author and Blogger
Nine books since 1998 and always one in the works. Culture commentary, book reviews, series (An Author's Life, Life as a Clergy Wife) and other errata on More Meredith Gould. Posts about social media strategy and tactics at Social Media Today, Christian Web Trends, and #ChSocM (church social media) blog. The Social Media Gospel featured Book Club selection by Patheos Progressive Christian, July 2013.
Communications Consultant and Digital Strategist
I'm a sociologist and digital strategist with decades of communications experience. I've been involved with healthcare communications with an emphasis on patient education and empowerment. Churches and mission-based organizations joined my client list in 2000. In July 2011, I founded the weekly Twitter-based ecumenical Church Social Media Chat (#ChSocM) and serve as its lead moderator.
I get laughs by mentioning my "Multiple Spirituality Disorder" but really, no kidding, I'm committed to working across denominations. I craft communications strategies and recommend tactics that help people of faith do and be church within and beyond the glorious buildings.
Wildly Diverse Cred
Learned graphic design and typography at Rochester Institute of Technology, majored in Sociology at Queens College, CUNY and then earned a PhD in Sociology from New York University. Did time in law school. There's more, of course, but enough for here and now.
