GirlGeek of the Week
March 2001

Catie Gosselin

Catie Gosselin

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.

When did you first discover your love and/or obsession with computers and technology?

Probably back in 1979 when my best friend's father brought a computer home. It was clunky and slow, but I was hooked.

How do you earn a living?

At first I earned money from designing web sites and graphics, but as WomanLinks.com grew there just were not enough hours in the day. My income now is based on advertising from WomanLinks.com as well as affiliate revenue.

Do you consider yourself a Geek?

More like a Geek in progress.

What is your favorite Website?

Considering it is what I live, breathe and sleep...WomanLinks.com.

What do you do when you are not working?

Homeschool my two sons, yoga, read or watch movies.

What's your motto?

"And our dreams are who we are." — Barbara Sher

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Meg Ryan

What would be the title of your autobiography?

I'll Get It Eventually

Who is the person you most admire?

My sister Sheila.

When and where were you the happiest?

Right here, right now (otherwise it would all be down hill, wouldn't it? LOL).

If you could have one super power what would it be?

Flight
