Tracy Weber is Sr. Director for Collaborative IT Services in the OIT. She has not yet successfully broken up with her phone, and averages 1-2 hours per day on her devices outside of work, including 52 phone pick-ups and 27 notifications daily. Unfortunately she has no way to track the number of times she gently or not-so-gently encourages her 4 boys to get off their phones and video games.

Will Bruckert is an IT Specialist on the College of Arts & Letters IT Services team in the OIT. He averages 79 min of phone time/day with 54 pickups and 21 notifications. His wife, Julia, also works in the OIT and together they try to use their devices as little as possible around their 4 children, ages 5-12, unless they’re taking pictures of their 2 adorable puppies, Carmel & S’More.
