I adore technology, especially the software that gets the job done. I really enjoy learning the software's capabilities. Because of my heavy usage in my 25 year career and my desire to learn all I can in a software program, I have earned certification from Microsoft as a Word User Specialist and as a certified as an Excel Expert. For 5 years I trained adults in a classroom setting as well as on-sight corporate training. While teaching, I maintained a 95% satisfaction score. I have done corporate training, was the requested instructor for 2 Minnesota district court judges and the sole on-sight software instructor at Grand Forks AFB for 4 weeks.
I know and have taught over 50 different software programs. I have extensive knowledge of Microsoft Word (certified), Excel (certified), PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, Project, and Visual Basic for Applications. I explain concepts in an easy to understand method and show you the easiest way to complete a task as well as shortcuts to do it. I am described as dedicated, reliable and innovative by former students.
Please contact me for more information on how I can help you.
I have worked professionally as a desktop publisher for 7 years. During that time I used Corel Ventura, QuarkXPress, and Microsoft Office Publisher. As part of a desktop publishing team, I created customer survey forms, magazines and a published book.
I have also used my desktop publishing skills for volunteer work, creating a monthly newsletter for a Church group.
I have worked professionally as a desktop publisher. Although I used more complicated software, I used MS Publisher for my volunteer newsletters. For 3 years I did layout for a Christian retreat group.
Publisher also does more than just newsletters. I know how to create other materials and mail merge with your contact list. I even created a Web site for a realtor using MS Publisher.
I know the ins and outs of the program and even some tricks that are not well known.
I have been using Microsoft Windows since the release of Windows 3.0 in 1990. I have used all the versions Microsoft has released since then. Also, I have also taught most of those Windows versions to adult students and many colleagues in my career. I know many tricks for Windows that aren’t known to regular users and have knowledge of advanced settings to customize how Windows can look and be used.
I enjoy public speaking and have been a member of Toastmasters International for the last 10 years. I have won club and area speech contests, and placed at the District level.
I have spoken to groups ranging in size from 5 to 250 about personal experiences that are not easy to speak about. I also was a software trainer for 4 years that demanded excellent speaking skills.
I know what works and doesn't work when it comes to public speaking.
I have been creating web sites since 1995. More than a half dozen different web sites have been created using HTML, FrontPage, and Dreamweaver including a local humane society, real estate, public speakers and Kiwanis fund raising web site.
While I was a software instructor I taught all levels of HTML and FrontPage classes.
