Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.

Catherine Stifter is a long-time public radio producer who is learning to be an online community manager in the age of digital convergence. And that's not too difficult because, whatever the platform, we all need to tell good stories.
Catherine serves as Web & Media Co-director (with NTEN member Gale Petersen) of New Routes to Community Health, an immigrant-led project to improve immigrant health through local media. Some of her most interesting social media work has been with Mascomm Associates, a consulting firm dedicated to making media part of the solution. She lives off-grid in California's beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains and commutes to work by satellite.
