About Katherine

I have over twenty-five years’ Information Technology experience with a proven track record of full end to end participation in Systems Development Life Cycle processes. Prior to becoming an IT professional, I trained as an art teacher. I was certified in two states. I did work-study in a pre-K lab school and I also substitute taught for three years. I have also volunteered as a religious education instructor.

I have a great deal of patience in addition to my basic knowledge. I have over twenty-five years of experience working with computers--both mainframe and PCs. I have been using Excel, Word and MS Office suite since the 1990s.

I was an art major for both my Bachelor's degree and my M.A.T. I have an excellent understanding of what makes a good photograph or image. I have won second place and people's choice for my photography in area art shows.

In addition to my computer and art backgrounds, I also have extensive writing experience. I was the newsletter editor for my church for a few years. I would love to help you with your computer, art or English goals.
