Joelle Norwood aka The Media Mama
Hello, I'm Joelle Norwood, TV producer. I call myself the the Media Mama because I'm the mama of my beautiful daughter -- Stephani Norwood, now Stephani Hayden, a Whitman HS graduate who lives in Portland, Oregon -- and I love media and #3 because it's fun to give yourself a title.
I created videos on Youtube  to spotlight the people and places of my almost hometown of Bethesda, Maryland.  I have lived here since 1967 and the days of Hot Shoppes and the Cement Factory. My mission is to connect & build a strong community by sharing great stories about the folks right here in Bethesda.  Plus I was really shocked to learn that people heard the screaming coming from LuluLemon but did not call the police, that's the not the Bethesda that I grew up in or where I raised my daughter. I believe that if you can connect people human to human people will care about one another, take responsibility and take action. I love living in Bethesda Maryland!  I love creating stories using videos. I love sharing stories about passionate and interesting people and places. I’m the founder,The Media Mama Agency, a full service web marketing agency providing web, video production and social media marketing. I am from the world of traditional media. Television, to be precise. Now I work as web media consultant and content producer as well as freelancing for Entertainment Tonight, Rachel Ray, Dr. Phil and other broadcast shows.  I am a Emmy-award-winning TV producer as well as an entrepreneur and speaker. I love technology and all kinds of gadgets. I have traveled around world covering news, feature and entertainment stories and now it's awesome to be based and work in Bethesda. I went to BCC HS and George Washington University and majored in broadcasting.  I started in TV right here in D.C. My first job was as a production assistant for Maury Povich on Panorama, then WTTG TV a million years ago.
