      • It seems that technology has been the only thing to stay “normal” over the last 6 months.  In fact, we are even more reliant on technology to organize our days, meet with colleagues, attend school, shop for everything from groceries to our favorite cocktails and stay in touch with family and friends.  Feeling overwhelmed?  I will share my favorite tools and some tips and tricks that are getting me through the “new normal”.
