About Valerie


Bio

Figuring things out on the computer has always been fun for me, which is probably why I ended up in this industry for my career. Helping others discover the cool stuff you can do is an added bonus! I have various teaching experience from college level to community education to internal corporate training. My students have often told me I have great skill in bridging the "tech talk" vs "regular talk" gap. I have the ability to "speak" both languages and enjoy helping others.

Figuring things out on the computer has always been fun for me, which is probably why I ended up in this industry for my career. Helping others discover the cool stuff you can do is an added bonus! I have various teaching experience from college level to community education to internal corporate training. My students have often told me I have great skill in bridging the "tech talk" vs "regular talk" gap. I have the ability to "speak" both languages and enjoy helping others.

I spent the majority of my career helping people with their computer issues from calculating issues with Excel to planning a better software design, I have held several Microsoft certifications including Microsoft Certified Trainer, Microsoft Certified Professional and Microsoft Certified Application Specialist. The last position I held was IT Director for a small county, I was blessed and was able to retire early, and now I have some time to give to tutoring.

I also have experience in Elementary Education as a substitute instructor, a parent advocate for students with special needs, administered and taught a small after school program and worked several summers at a summer camp for children with ADHD. I have done much public speaking serving as judge for speech and debate events, and a drama coach for our local High School.

If you need help, lets talk and see if I can be of assistance! I am also willing to travel into Colorado Springs or Pueblo if the situation warrants it.
