Jewel Ward is a quirky information technology expert on a mission to empower creatives and small business owners to connect to their clients online so they can succeed and thrive.

She is the Founder and Principal of Impact Zone Consultancy.She thinks it is wrong that many people consider technology an end in and of itself. No, technology is a tool that enables creative work.

Few of us are experts at “everything”. She tells people to focus on their craft and their business, and to leave the SEO and digital preservation and digital curation work to her.

Jewel considers chocolate and coffee two daily food group requirements. In her spare time, she gets outdoors or updates herself on celebrity gossip. She lives near Asheville, North Carolina.
