I am an experienced Corporate Microsoft Trainer and Educator with over 25 years of extensive knowledge and expertise in all phases of Microsoft Office (Publisher, Word, PowerPoint, Access and Excel).

Why should you hire me?
In order to perform a professional skill, one has to be educated in that skill first. Not only am I educated in the skills I process --- I AM the educator

I bring that skill and knowledge into every job that I work on.

Exceptional organizational and creative skills from having done data processing department conversions for 2 companies, developed entire Networking Support Services program for a technical center, and created instructional manuals and handouts for all of the Microsoft Office programs. This array of unique, diverse experience has been crucial in developing my skills as a well-rounded professional. I share with my clients my enthusiasm for what we can create together.

I specialize in projects that offer creativity and ingenuity.
