The Inaugural Code(Her) Conference

Romona Foster Mentioned in The Inaugural Code(Her) Conference by Sarah Jedrey

The Social Media Trainer and Consultant at Admin Tech Consulting, Romona Foster is a woman of many talents. Due to the laptop and projector refusing to talk to each other for a half hour, we learned that one of her talents was to memorize the name of 30 people in a few minutes. What could’ve been a dull disaster became a high-energy exchange of ideas about the role of social media and how to convince clients reluctant to change.

But before we did, Romona left us with a good, actionable list of tips and tools especially useful for the less-experienced.

Interview with The Story Exchange – Empowering Women to Start Their Own Business


I started freelancing out of necessity. I was taking some event management classes in 2007. The program I was participating in required all students to complete a full-time internship and 160 practicum hours. In order to do this, I had to leave my full-time job as a meeting manager. I no longer had an income, so I started working on short-term projects for consultants and home-based businesses. In 2008, when I completed my internship and practicum hours, I began looking for work. The economy had taken a turn, so I was having a hard time finding a job. In the past, I never had a problem finding employment. Months of looking turned into years, so it really became pretty scary. I never really changed my mindset from looking for a job until 2012 when my passion took over …
