Emily G. Culbertson: web strategist and planner

For more than 15 years, I've helped a diverse set of organizations use the Web to build awareness and ongoing relationships with their target audiences.

As a consultant, I help organizations large and small think through Web strategy, planning, vendor selection and project management. Previously, I conducted research on the future of news for Chicago's Community Media Workshop (now Public Narrative) and was a periodic contributor to the website of the Communications Network, a membership organization for communicators in philanthropy.

Before becoming a consultant in September 2008, I worked at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where I helped lead the launch of many projects to enhance RWJF's Web site and helped launch RWJF's social media efforts.

Before moving to Chicago in August 2008, I worked for nearly four years at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health and health care issues. At RWJF, I collaborated with a talented group of colleagues to help RWJF use the Web to meet its goals and the needs of its visitors.

Prior to joining RWJF, I worked at I-SITE, Inc., where my colleagues and I helped pharmaceutical clients build and maintain relationships with consumers and health care professionals, and at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, where the Web team built and maintained a large consumer Web site.
