My Path to Success
I started down the digital media & web design and development road in 2000 when I took a course to learn how to put my midwifery & herbs school online (yep, I’m a midwife/herbalist turned techie!). I got bit by the multimedia bug, then found out I excelled at managing projects, leading teams, and helping businesses succeed. I've been at it ever since.
After finishing an AS in Digital Media, I went on to get my BS in Telecommunication, Multimedia and Applied Computing. Then while caring for my mother in her final years and working from home full time, I got my MS in Management of IT. Now, I learn for fun! I'll be a lifelong learner, it is in my DNA.
My favorite is working with distributed teams, users and stakeholders to identify needs, processes, goals, and priorities in order to achieve successful outcomes. It's really fun to see a client’s vision come to life, and be part of that process.

What my friends & teachers say
I worked closely with Becka as advisor and teacher at California State University, Monterey Bay. She was a key player in our Educational Networked Improvement Community (EdNic) that included recorded dialogs (video, text, wiki, blog, discussion boards) regarding creating dynamic knowledge repositories for harnessing collective intelligence. Her participation was indeed notable. She designed and developed an innovative, dynamic and historically significant project with interviews from technology pioneers who were influence by the work of Douglas Engelbart. All in all, she was consistently a team player and delivered high quality work.
Valerie Landau, Professor & Engelbart Expert
Rebecca is one of the most dedicated, attention-to-detail designer/project managers I've ever mentored. She is highly organized, works and communicates well with people at all levels of an organization and with clients, and has a cheery disposition. Even when she has to deliver difficult news, she manages to be upbeat. Highly recommended.
Dan Shafer, Mentor - Shafer Media
I had the privilege of working with Rebecca on the ISDE5 - an international event on sustainability and mapping with over 350 participants. Her calm and professional approach during the project contributed greatly to the success of the symposium. Her organized and diligent efforts were greatly appreciated by staff, participants and speakers. I would be honored to work with her again in the future.
