Leaving a career in advertising, public relations, and marketing nineteen years ago, to pursue a career in technology education she now uses effective design and communication skills gained through her experiences in the business world to communicate her love of research and information gathering, reading, and technology with her students, staff, and community.
In her spare time, Gwyneth enjoys reading, traveling, digital photography, graphic desing, alternative/progressive music, Welsh stuff, buzztime trivia, darts, exploring the Steampunk Aesthetic and managing a virtual library & factory in New Babbage - Second Life, and writing biographies of herself in the third person. Admittedly, she’s a goofball and a geek.
