A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE

The digital world is impacting all of us – especially our impressionable youth. In my 36 year career as a law enforcement officer, I was fortunate to spend 12 of those years serving as an “Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC)” investigator. My role as an investigator was to pose as a child, your child, my child. The world that I suddenly found myself immersed in was almost beyond descriptive words. I knew that my investigations were important and they were making a difference – one online predator at a time. But my heart told me that I had to do more, that I needed to share my unique perspective on the risks and dangers of the digital world. I knew that I needed to empower others to make safe and healthy choices in their digital lives.

In 2005, I began presenting my DIGITAL DIVIDE program to parents, educators and children. Since that time I have provided vital information on the risks of the digital world to thousands of presentation attendees. My profession has transformed to my passion. Since I have been blessed with retirement, I am collaborating with some amazing people (the DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT PROJECT TEAM!) who share my concern and passion for this important topic – hence the DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT PROJECT. There is so much to do, but it all starts with a dialogue with our children, parents and educators. Instead of simply “speaking” to others, our project aims to provide powerful and engaging presentations reinforced by an interactive online community where parents and educators can receive support and encouragement on digital safety. I am also going to strive to provide relevant and timely online resources including instructional webinars and videos.

EMPOWERMENT. Let the DIGITAL EMPOWERMENT PROJECT help.

ENGAGING

When a speaker is passionate about their topic – it allows the presentation to be engaging, impactful and leaves the attendees feeling informed and empowered. Each presentation includes detailed visual and audio aids as well as a Q&A session.

AGE APPROPRIATE

The information delivered is always age-appropriate while not diluting the important message. Presentations are available for both middle-school and high-school aged children in school, civic group or church youth groups. The parent and educator presentations provide the information that parents need to hear no matter what their level of internet knowledge is.

RELEVANT

Presentations are constantly being updated and revised so they are relevant. If you, or your organization has a specific need or concern, presentations can (and should) be tailored to address your needs. Information is important – it should be accurate, timely and relevant.
