Downers Grove Youth Baseball's Cindy Tschosik has knack for technology
Tschosik grew up in the Chicago area, where she attended Glenbard North High School before graduating from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale with a degree in Paralegal Studies. She said she has database development experience and a lifelong knack for understanding Information Technology. Tschosik is fluent in several content management platforms, including Sport Ngin’s Sitebuilder, WordPress, Yourmembership.com, Mailchimp and Constant Contact. Her work overhauling the St. Mary of Gostyn Catholic Parish and School website caught the attention of a Downers Grove Youth Baseball board member, and she was hired last year to manage the association’s website and its content. Tschosik founded SoConnected, LLC, a company that provides website and social media management, in 2013. She lives in Downers Grove and has three children, a 12-year-old daughter and twin 11-year-old boys, who are all active in a variety of sports.
Tschosik helped migrate the old Downers Grove Youth Baseball site to the Sport Ngin platform last year, and her fingerprints are all over the site's clean, modular pages filled with easy-to-consume information. She helped shape the site’s design and content structure and put a major emphasis on introducing and explaining the goals and rules for each of DGYB’s leagues. She also has worked with board members to build out registrations for leagues and clinics and is in the process of setting up an online payment system for sponsors.
The Sponsorship Programs section of the site includes a Partner Directory page that lists several area businesses (including SoConnected) and a Partner and Sponsor Opportunities page that explains the benefits of the various levels of partnerships.
