RESOURCE MAVEN

 
I have loved being an in-person community maven. In addition, I equally enjoy being an online social media maven. As a result, I have welcomed the challenge of thoroughly researching topics and people. As a researcher, I use both primary source interviews and recorded documentation. That is how my database of information has grown to be a resource guide. Coincidently, it is why I have become a Resource Maven.

My primary areas of focus are detailed in the next page of this website, The Directory of Resources.

How I Became A Resource Maven

I have always been curious and outgoing. Consequently, gathering information led me to become a Social Media and Community Services Maven. Over the years, even to this day, I have loved to meet people. I love to network in group settings as one example. Learning about new things has always inspired me. That’s how I gather information about people and things. The result is that I became a good resource person. For example, I can be found strolling around my community in good weather. That is when I make my tour that includes local businesses. The result of this is a visit to their owners and staff. In addition, I get to chat with local residents along the way.
