2: Why I Chose Allison Bieri Allison Bieri is the daughter-in-law of my dad's partner. Her husband also works with my dad. I have met her a couple of times at dinners. We would go out to dinner for Christmas every year together where there was a Santa Claus.She is an Accountant at General Motors and I want to be an Accountant. I wanted to know what she studied in college so I can know if I am on the right track for becoming a successful Accountant. I also did not know much about her personally so I wanted to learn about her as I feel she could be a future mentor for me.
3: What I Already Know She is married to Alex Bieri. They were married in 2007. THey have a son, Ben, and are expecting another soon. Her maiden name is Fox. She lives in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. She lived in Connecticut at some point. She is an Accountant at General Motors.
4: My Investigation My investigation started on Facebook. When I searched for Allison Bieri, there was only one person who came up. I looked at the little information that was on the page and compared it to the information I already knew about Allison. They matched up, so I was fairly certain this was who I was searching for. I looked at her list of friends and found that her husband was one of her friends. This picture was one I found on her page. It was her profile picture. It had been a different picture.
5: Her husband's page was also locked but I was able to find out more on his page than on hers. I then did a Google search to see if I could find any more information on her. I was able to find several links that had different information about her that I did not know before. I found out she went to a Catholic Church
6: I was able to find items that were on her baby registry. I knew she was expecting so I was fairly sure I had the right person.
7: I was also able to find out she likes to run. There were several local newspaper articles that had results for different runs and marathons that her time in them. I was also able to find out she had donated money to and was involved with the 2010 Making Strides Detroit, MI GM-Women in Finance/Accounting. I was able to find out she was involved with the group called Detroit Synergy. After looking at the organization and what it did, it did not surprise me that she was involved in it or that she was the contact person for different things such as running events.

10: My Reflections | I liked this assignment because it have me the opportunity to use the search strategies and techniques we learned in class to find information about someone who I knew some things about, but was curious to learn more about. It showed me the importance of keeping as much of your life as you can private. Someone who did not know me could possibly learn a whole lot about me by spending a short time on the internet. That is scary to me. I honestly had no idea it was that easy to find information on someone. You do not even have to know the person at all or have met them.
