Conscious Media Consulting, LLC is a conscious content and conscious media project consultancy and media literacy skill development training organization for professional content creators.
Ava Montgomery was born in California. She spent her formative years in the suburb of Northridge, CA. Her exploratory nature has moved her to reside in a number of states and locales.
As a Southern California native though, she is innately drawn to beautiful beaches located there and around the world. As an original “Valley Girl”, of course, she is fascinated by the media industry.
Whether through books, television, movies or theater--Ava learned early on how to develop multicultural lenses for the purpose of media analysis.
Ava's media literacy was not "left up to chance". From an early start she received guidance on how to recognize the differences between narratives as told through the subjects own voices and those told of them through media inspired narratives and images.
In addition to informal study, she has used her keenness for understanding influences on narratives and representations in formal scholastic pursuits. Because media has been particularly influential regarding social justice issues, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
Then, she furthered her studies and completed a Master of Arts degree in Media, Peace and Conflict Studies from an international studies university. She studied the influence of Western media narratives and representations on global discourses-- past and present.
Upon completing her studies, Ava interned in the Media Education department for a public media station. There, she learned how technical equipment and software are used in media production.
Equipped with career successes, theoretical education and practical hands-on experience in content and media creation in front of and behind the camera, she fulfilled her goal of writing a comprehensive Media Literacy Guide for content creators and media consumers.
“Listen-In! Watch-Out! Word-Up! A Guide to Understanding and Developing Conscious Media Literacy Skills” offers helpful insights for acquiring conscious literacy skills needed to understand how discourses in the past often manipulate discourses in the present.
The continuum of content influencers and media engagers can use the information to better analyze media and impart conscious consumption practices in children and young people.
