When Susan Reynolds, M.Ed, a lifetime educator, witnessed the promise and peril of the Internet in 1997, she became deeply concerned about technology’s role in students’ lives. After twenty years of investigating and researching the issues, she came to believe some of the escalating mental health crisis among teens and college students could be prevented with the mindful use of technology and digital wellness. Today, nearly 100% of all solutions to mitigate digital overload and 24/7 connectivity were designed by adults. No one was asking Gen Z for their solutions. In response, Susan launched LookUp.live, a nonprofit incubator that exists to improve mental health and wellbeing by empowering youth to reverse the negative effects of digital overload. LookUp discovers, invests in, and accelerates youth-led solutions into its virtual incubator. As an international speaker, workshop leader, and Director of Youth Advocacy at the Digital Wellness Collective,, Susan is supporting a youth led social movement to shift social norms around digital use.
