Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Eric is an interactive marketing consultant at Northridge Interactive, specializing in Web Analytics, Organic Search Engine Optimization, and Pay-Per-Click Management. His interest in online marketing was sparked in 2001 while working for an Atlanta area web marketing firm where he learned the benefits of marketing to achieve concrete results. A results-driven Google Certified AdWords Professional, Eric has engaged in Adwords and Google Grants Management for a number of nonprofit clients while at Northridge Interactive. Eric contributes regularly to the Online Marketing Council and was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair of the Web Analytics committee. Eric began his career as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army -- but now the color of his parachute is "marketing". Eric is getting married this spring and hopes his wife will embrace his eclectic loves of practicing Wing Chun Kung Fu, wearing out his copy of Halo 3, and heavily consuming internet marketing reads. He hopes the salsa dancing will help in this regard.
Green Moon Solutions
John is the founder and CEO of Green Moon Solutions, focusing on Internet technology solutions for nonprofits and small businesses. After stints in the military and corporate consulting, he moved into the nonprofit field about a decade ago. He's been to every NTC since 2006 when he became addicted to the information exchange and personal interaction the event provides. When not writing code, analyzing the latest CMSs, or tweaking a database, John likes to run, paint, and hike.
Friends of Trees
After working with a financial management firm and saving the world with the Peace Corps, Melissa began working for Friends of Trees a year ago. With Friends of Trees she manages individual donations, small business sponsors, and their Gift Tree program. She also offers her motivational services pro-bono to NTEN to help them celebrate birthdays and minor victories by harassing them into enjoying happy hour as often as possible.
World Resources Institute
Laura Lee is the Online Engagement Strategist for World Resources Institute, an environmental think tank headquartered in DC. She devotes her time to social media, web analytics and online community development. Laura Lee joined WRI in 1986 and implemented their first website in 1996. She enjoys being googled, twittered, friended, fanned, and followed.
Forum One Communications
Michaela Hackner is a Senior Project Officer at Forum One Communications, where she leads strategy and web development projects for foundations, government, and non profit organizations. In her former life she was a web developer for the private sector, with a stint in humanitarian aid analysis, and overseas working for a women’s micro-finance program in Cambodia and Kenya.
Shifting to a
focus in international development related work in 2005, Michaela
recognized the need for technology expertise within non-profit
organizations - both in terms of marketing and communications purposes,
and for the delivery of services to constituents/beneficiaries. Taking
advantage of her varied background, Michaela seeks to make the internet
and technology accessible for all non profits and their audiences as
well as exploiting it for the good of humanity.
In her spare time Michaela enjoys traveling, long-distance running, photography, and hanging out with her wild doggy, Atlas.
