Initially, I earned my Bachelors’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Education and achieved a Master’s Degree in Education. After college, I started my career as an elementary classroom teacher focusing on teaching students of all grades. When the school technology position opened, I quickly jumped in feet first. The work focused on reading with the use of technology as a teaching medium. The job position opened the door to what is now over 25 years of technology experience.
Having held many positions in the Information Technology field, I have been exposed to a vast array of technology. Everything from Microsoft Windows, Apple OS, mobile technology, firewalls, wireless access points, cabling, etc. I have acquired a vast knowledge of business and home technology.
Currently working as the IT Director of a prominent US environmental company, I find it imperative to keep my skills honed and advanced. I have therefore undertaken client work to implement current skills as well as learn new ones. I have become quite versed in all areas of WordPress, studied and implemented search engine optimization best practices. I have taught myself CSS, HTML5, paid search, digital marketing, and I have recently acquired my Google Analytics Individual Qualification.
“SEE A NEED – FILL A NEED”
What sets us apart from other consultants?
We’re Vendor Neutral
All of my recommendations are made based on your needs and budget. I am not beholden to any particular vendor, just my clients. Although I am currently pushing the use of WordPress, I have used other CMS products, including Drupal, Joomla, and Magento. I have also worked with Wix and Squarespace. I currently support sites hosted by the top hosting companies, including 1and1, Bluehost, WPengine, and GoDaddy. I have installed HP Aruba Access Points as well as Ubiquiti. I have recommended Dell, HP, Asus, and Lenovo printers and computers. I weigh the options, and we make the decision together.
We Speak Geek
My years of being a school teacher have taught me how to speak to someone about technology without confusing them. As a result, my clients will understand what it is we are working to achieve without feeling left in the dark. I am never condescending to my clients, and they are always left with a good understanding of what is involved.
Clients Come First
I don’t overload myself with clients and projects. Instead, I make sure that my clients receive such personal service that they feel like the only client I have. I am very selective about the projects I will assume and have turned some down because they would interfere with current clients.
Local … Sort Of
Located in beautiful Lithia, Florida, I am central to assist any small business or home user. Although my focus is the Brandon, Lithia, Fishhawk, and Valrico areas, I am more than happy to work with clients outside my immediate area.
