The story of the #ladygeeks
Initially, the #Ladygeeks was a weekly, live video podcast. In fact, you can see quite a few of our episodes here and here. After 55 very popular episodes, Katie and Shari chose to change directions. Katie needed to focus on her Admin degree and Shari wanted to pursue a freelance computer consultation venture.
Shari Sloane recently resigned 18 years into her teaching career following a former professor's advice: "When it's no longer enjoyable, get out!" She is now following her passion: computers and education. In 2014, Shari became the sole owner of The #Ladygeeks brand, which was a strong brand. So she kept the brand but changed the mission. Now the brand is focused on freelance computer work, specifically focused in our local area: Rochester, NY. Another focus is to offer technology courses and workshops to the community, specifically senior citizens and at-risk youth.
