In The Doll World
In The Doll World: In 2019, Georgette Taylor and I created a podcast designed to connect doll lovers and doll professionals. The show was called In The Doll World™ (ITDW). Overnight, its intimate interviews with doll professionals crushed barriers between the professionals and doll lovers. The show is now shared worldwide.
My work with ITDW has allowed me to earn a coveted spot as a respected member of the inner circle of the doll community. It also allowed me to hone my skills as a doll expert. My specialty areas are innovation; networking; and, diversity, equity, inclusion, and empathy.
NEW OPPORTUNITIES: I left ITDW in Dec. 2021 to spend more time with my family and to pursue other opportunities including my collaboration with Smarty Pants Academy.
When I left, ITDW podcast shows had been downloaded in more than a third of the world's countries. We had also interviewed people from every continent--except Antarctica. ITDW also had thousands of followers on the social media accounts I created and maintained, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter.
Some of my most important work with ITDW included:
initiating our effort to capture the global impacts of the Covid-epidemic
creating two annual Black doll celebrations and a Pride festival
writing the foreword for and editing the book Doll Photography by Polish doll photographer, Izabela Kwella
receiving kudos from Feedspot for having created the top doll podcast website for 2020 and 2021
