About Chief Technology Mommy
Chief Technology Mommy’s goal is to help keep our children and teens safe on the Internet – No Excuses! Parents can visit this site regularly to get relevant tips on Internet safety and be informed through international stories related to the use and impact of technology on children. Chief Technology Mommy will also point out the links between self-esteem and a child’s behavior on the Internet.
My name is Marlin Page and I am an Internet Safety Advocate. As a technology CEO, mommy of a “tween,” and former Chief Information Officer for the City of Detroit. I am relentless about protecting our children and teens from potential dangers on the Internet. I believe the best defense is for parents to become informed and knowledgeable participants in their children’s online lives. After attending years of corporate technology meetings where the participants (yes, I’m guilty) used high level technical jargon to explain the simplest concepts, it’s very easy to understand a parent’s frustration when attempting to grasp the basics and navigate through the world of social media. I plan to bridge the gap and empower parents to become more technology savvy.
I began my technology career as a mainframe programmer, served as a corporate technology executive, and eventually started a successful technology recruiting and consulting practice. Most recently I was selected to serve as the keynote speaker for Microsoft Corporation’s DigiGirlz Technology Camp. My 20+ years of extensive experience in the field of technology, down-to-earth style and ability to simplify technology, has caused me to emerge as a reliable source for information and Internet Safety. Most importantly, my roles as wife and mommy give the advantage of offering “real life” strategies on keeping children and teens safe on the Internet.
I am also the author of “Always Believe,”a book empowering girls to love themselves, believe in themselves, and celebrate their uniqueness. For more information or speaking inquiries, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 313-420-0591.
