The Geeky Grandma in Action!

Jill McCarthy IS The Geeky Grandma with an Encouraging Nudge

Tech came easy to Jill McCarthy, aka The Geeky Grandma. Since her first computer arrived she has been learning and creating and teaching, and over the years it has led to the growth of a real community.

She combined her affection for penpal letter writing into e-pals where matched women would email each other.  That grew into a women’s group, retreats, and her community.

Jill’s podcast is The Geeky Grandma with An Encouraging Nudge.  That name has a story behind it and Jill shares it.  She also encourages us to go for our dreams… even if they need to be scaled back a bit at this age.

Jill’s catch-phrase is “The desires of the heart” and she truly is all heart. Meeting with women who are preparing for retirement or are newly retired, she slows the clock to inquire about interests from another time… and help them get to a next place.
