My 15 minutes of fame

I recently had the opportunity to publicly comment on a couple of subjects near and dear to my heart. The first was regarding the townhouse where we live. Boston Magazine interviewed me as a renter in Roslindale. I heard about the project on my local moms' forum and offered to be interviewed, since I really enjoy our newly rented townhouse and have had a fantastic experience with our landlady.

My family was a really good sport about the photo shoot, and we ended up with a lovely family photo.


My second recent media experience was with my company, EMC, at my daughter's school. They were producing a video montage for International Women's Day on the theme "Make it Happen." I had posted on my company's internal wiki about my volunteering efforts for the Hour of Code, and I received an email asking if I was interested in being in the video.

EMC TV came to my daughter's school last week to film me teaching the Hour of Code to the 5th grade students and interviewed me on the project and the importance of volunteering. The kids loved learning about coding using the Frozen game I taught, and they did so well advancing to the higher levels of the game. I wrote all about the Hour of Code in this blog post.

Here is the link to the EMC video for International Women's Day. It's currently on the home page of I feel so fortunate to work for an amazing company that not only allows, but encourages, my volunteering efforts. Go EMC!

  1. Sounds like 30 minutes. Nice going! In the family photo, your cutie daughter reminds me of the little girl in the Disney Enchanted movie.
