“I created Shared Context Consultants to recognize and help you address that we are in the midst of a social media revolution in history. The unintended effect being that the younger generation is connected more to the internet than to traditional bricks and mortar museums. Therefore, historians and associated non profit organizations, for profit business and for public establishments need to adapt and reach out to the social media attuned next generation to share the wonderful richness of history and museums. Shared Context Consultants can help revitalize and successfully reconnect your history into the 21st century!
The key to helping historical institutions and heritage organizations is by making a connection: finding a way to reach younger generations in their world. Technology offers us an amazing opportunity to connect. Between mainstream social media strategy and integration of very specific technologies such as panoramic photos and drone videos (http://eaglecondormedia.com), we can meet young people half way, and offer them a reason to want to study history.
Preserving history in a relevant is a passion of mine. My imagination was tweaked and ignited by the possibilities of what museums and heritage organizations have to offer. I loved seeing how people lived in different time periods. Stories, art, artifacts and on-site experiences offer us an amazing gift – they teach us the transcendence of humanity and connect us with our ancestors.

It is all about storytelling. I have extensive experience in sound recording, editing, and integration, and I love to tell a good story. How much more compelling is it to hear the real voices of history or a dictation of historical documents than to read a plaque on a wall? Historical trails and museums can be an immersive, and offer an enthralling storytelling experience, and I can help you get there.
Friends and colleagues have asked me why I am so devoted to my work, and I honestly cannot see myself doing anything else. I love preserving history; I love their capacity to inspire and connect in ways no other venues or experiences can. What I am doing – combining a true love of historical institutions and heritage sites as they are with new technologies and tools – creating a new way to understand history. To me that is a challenge, and one I am thrilled to take on. I am also a registered “woman-owned business” and would love to hear from you!
