    Collaboration: If pigs could fly and who's to say they can't

    Oh! Now I get it!

    I will be honest, when I began this COETAIL journey I really didn’t understand the whole community engagement piece. One of the first things I had to do was get a twitter account and post something?? Yikes! I was 45, and considered myself to be qui

    Ch-Ch-Change!
