“Hmm, what to get your geeky guy? Let us help with these holiday gift ideas for techie dads (and dudes)! @parenting http://bit.ly/Ut4DMw”@JeanaTahnk
I am a self-proclaimed techno-geek and have been immersed in the high-tech industry for approximately 15 years, or since Mark Zuckerberg was in the 7th grade. After becoming a mom, I became keenly interested in the vast and rapidly growing world of technology geared towards families and how my future digital citizens will be impacted.
My passion for technology parlays into these areas of my business:
We’re experiencing just the beginning of the kind of innovation that's in our future and I look forward to exploring it with you!•••

An effective business strategy can make the difference between a startup and a pioneer; a CEO and a thoughtleader; a simple technology and a true industry disruptor. I provide effective launch strategies, advise on new product roll-out, help with business plans, beta test mobile apps and more, both as a consultant and as an Advisory Board member.
As a business writer, I work with companies to develop content and effectively communicate their key messages through corporate collateral, website copy, blog content, press releases and more.
As a PR consultant, I provide counsel on the best way to communicate your company’s message and vision to those who have the most influence in your market, both through traditional and social media.
Over the past 15 years, I have worked with startups to Fortune 500 companies, helping maximize clients’ visibility and establish leadership through thoughtful and deliberate strategy. Click here for a small sampling of current and past clients.
From a media relations standpoint, I have secured coverage for my clients in every major media and online outlet, including USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Reuters, Associated Press, Inc. Magazine, San Jose Mercury News, Mashable, TechCrunch, CNET and many others.

Her understanding of how to design and implement a successful media strategy coupled with her creativity and writing ability makes her an incredible PR asset. Her work ethic and tenacity are the icing on the cake.”Tyler Perry, Vice President, Bateman Group

Jeana is a pleasure to work with and a joy to edit. She is truly a master of her subject, and it shows.”Josh Catone, Features Editor, Mashable
“I hired Jeana as a tech blogger in 2011, and she has also become Parenting's go-to tech expert for stories about apps, computers, wired families and more. She is extremely knowledgeable, very keen to learn as much as she can, and shows great attention to detail. She just gets it. Anyone would be lucky to get a chance to work with Jeana.”Sasha Emmons, Contributing Editor, Parenting.com
“Jeana was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. She is thoughtful, extremely well spoken, and has a good eye for what an audience is looking for. I was privileged to have her as a repeated guest on 7Live, a daily live television program. More than just an expert on all things parenting and technology, she is an organized and totally polished television presence. I'm glad to have worked with her and would be happy to do so again.”Geoff Chapman, ABC 7Live Producer
When I'm not with my family, writing, executing PR strategies or thinking about the latest gadgets, I enjoy the important things in life, like reading US Weekly and going shoe shopping.
I live in the Boston area with my husband (whom I mock incessantly for still using Lotus Notes), young son, younger daughter and middle-aged dog.
