 Cherie Dargan

I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother to two little boys who are already comfortable using my iPod touch or iPad to play games or watch videos.
 Family Genealogist

My mother compiled our family history, and I am continuing her work. This is Diana Lewis--my 2nd Great Grandma. She made a Red & Green quilt in 1860 that is still in my family. 
Webmaster -- The Ruth Suckow Memorial Association website.

My husband created the first website: I redesigned it on a new platform and maintain it now. We applied for, and received, Google for Non-Profit status, giving us more space to expand.

Now, I'm also the webmaster for the Cedar Falls Authors Festival, celebrating five great local writers!

 Social Media Enthusiast
My husband, Michael, is a librarian and Alpha Geek. He encouraged me to join him in exploring Social Media in 2008. 
I have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
 Technology Columnist for the Cedar Valley Business Monthly & NOW  The Waterloo Courier

I've been writing a monthly column on an aspect of Technology since the Spring of 2012.
 Former Professor, Communications Dept. at Hawkeye Community College

I retired in August, 2016.  

I consider myself a "working" writer because I write constantly. I love to take pictures with my iPad at events and post them on Facebook. However, until I took early retirement, I was a writing teacher, so spent a great deal of time responding to student work.  Since retirement, I've gotten busy with volunteer work, babysit my two grandsons more, and love having more time to read, write, blog, and get involved with my community.
