#30Seconds Live: Multi-Talented Author, Educator, Community Builder Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead! by Elisa Schmitz

It was a busy week at 30Seconds.com. We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to meet up with our very own Contributor Relations Coordinator, Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead! Even better, we got to share our very first livestream happy hour with this multi-talented and very special member of our tribe, who's also a wonderful wife and mother of two. (Ann Marie even stayed for dinner - you can hear the Chinese food delivery in the background, LOL!)

We talked about Ann Marie's fascinating career in theater, education, play-writing, book authorship, community building and, of course, her excellent work at 30Seconds (both writing and finding other talented contributors to share their work on our platform). Ann Marie's tips always resonate with our audience; in fact, hers are among our top tips.

For me, it was an incredible blessing to finally meet her in real life. After working together for two years, meeting in person felt completely natural, like greeting a dear friend. Watch our video interview with Ann Marie to learn more about her, and the special ways she works with our tribe to make it the best it can be. I'm sure you will love her as much as I do!
