Meet the NTEN Community

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

Heidi Schudrowitz

The Movement Disorder Society

Heidi is a Website Project Manager for The Movement Disorder Society, an international professional medical society of 3,500 members. Our members are researchers and physcians who specialize in the neurosciences. We are operated by an AMC, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

Before I joined MDS, I worked as a reporter, copy editor and online producer for Wisconsin's largest daily newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  That is where I was introduced to the Internet in 1999 - WAY before I had even heard of HTML, and got my "formal" training as a Web site producer.

My hobbies include trail hiking, travel abroad, journaling, blogging (two very distinct things!), Vespas, and shopping the local farmers markets.
