Why “Guilt” by Association? Not literally guilty.
But because I’m “guilty” of being associated with associations, and proud of it. Love ’em, hate ’em, or both, doesn’t matter — we got ’em. And we make a big difference in the world.
I’m Chief Digital Strategist and Communications Director of the Massachusetts Medical Society in Waltham, Mass. I also spent 15 years in journalism, editing newscasts for local TV news stations, and editing a regional business newspaper until I was invited to become a partner in the Providence PR and marketing firm RDW Group. I am also an incorrigible Red Sox and Celtics fan, and remain devoted to Bruce Springsteen’s music since my first introduction to him at a concert in a 4000 seat gym in Providence, a trillion years ago.
I am also passionately devoted to education. My father was a teacher. So was an uncle, an aunt … etc. I have been a board member of the Needham Education Foundation since 2003 and was co-president from 2008 to 2010.
One other thing: The opinions here are solely my own.
