I am an app obsessed, tech geeky mom who is always looking for her next app fix.  I’ll try anything if it’ll help me save time, money or be more organized.  Naturally, my kids love me for it as they now have a nice collection of kid friendly apps on the iPhone and iPad.

My love for technology stems back to the 10+ years of working for technology based companies.  Ironic that my first real job after finishing University was working for Rogers Cantel (now Rogers Wireless).  I still remember the brick Motorola phone my boss had.  Looking back, those were truly exciting times.

And that’s how it all began.
