There are billions of social media accounts.
But only a few leaders truly ignite community connection.
You can be one of them.

If you want to learn more about how to align your values and purpose on social media, work with her!
The coaching relationship with Josie is all about uncovering your own truths and purpose and finding ways to intentionally reveal it all in your preferred mediums. I learned a lot and, as a result, am even more purposeful with every tweet, post, and message. Her work is integrative — my work and messaging were aligned.
If you want to learn more about your purpose and values, and social media, then work with Josie. She is smart, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She believes in co-creation and brings out the best in her clients. I am a better educator and communicator because of her.
“The Digital Education Collaborative began its Digital Citizenship Week initiative in 2014 because it made sense. Longwood University’s robust programming calendar with its focus on developing citizen leaders was missing a comparable initiative. Following #LancerNation’s welcoming reception, I knew we were ready for more and Dr. Ahlquist was a natural first choice. From start to finish, a partnership spanning nearly nine months, Josie was an absolute rockstar! Her ability to connect with our students, whether delivering a keynote to hundreds or interacting at a student tabling event, truly personalized our message.”
Assistant Director, Digital Education Collaborative at Longwood University
“Josie was very engaged with the audience and did a good job of relating to the students.
She provided valuable resources for getting more involved and the activities were fun and refreshing. I would highly recommend her as a speaker to bring back to Longwood.”

“You may face more negative backlash online as a woman, but Josie gave us great tips on how to protect ourselves online”

“I learned that you really can be a role model for other women on social media and you should use this to your advantage by promoting yourself in a special, positive, and unique way. Build other women up!”

Helping plan and execute this event as an ITC gave me more than a line to add to my resume, I improved my organizational and communication skills.
I also found out exactly what it takes to plan a campus wide program that reached hundreds of my peers. I also was able to gain experience with practical skills such as grant writing and networking which will help me in my future after Longwood. As a student attending the keynote talks, I was able to take Dr. Ahlquist’s advice on my social media posting and am working on rebranding myself and my digital presence online to make me a more appealing candidate for graduate school and a better digital leader.”
