GirlGeek of the Week
Catie Gosselin thought she had her career mapped
out. She was a successful geek, working as a network administrator.
But one month after her return from maternity leave she was laid
off and left to ponder the direction of her career.
She didn't let the adversity get her down. Instead, she and her
husband started Townsend
Craft & Graphics, where she began to hone her
graphics and Web design skills.
Today, she heads up WomanLinks.com,
a supportive community for women. WomanLinks proudly offers content
and features to foster a spirit of empowerment, experience sharing,
and growth for women of all ages and lifestyles and is part of the
Women's Forum network.
