KT's Office Solutions consists of an experienced professional Corporate Software Trainer and Educator with over 25 years of extensive knowledge and expertise in all phases of Microsoft Office (Publisher, Word, PowerPoint, Access and Excel).

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 specialize in projects that offer creativity and ingenuity and I provide clients with fast, professional, high quality services.

You will find me friendly and easy to deal with. I am a native English speaker born and raised in northern N.J. and now residing in southeast Florida.
Service Description
I have done data processing department conversions for 2 companies, developed the entire Networking Support Services program for a technical center, and created numerous "how to" 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.

From initial contact to the execution and satisfactory completion of each assignment I give each project I work on, my complete undivided attention.
