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.

Photography

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching with my major being art. During both my undergraduate and graduate training I took photography classes. As part of my secondary art education training, I developed a unit on photography. As a Lions Club member looking for photographs for our annual calendar, I have made several presentations to the photography classes at Stafford High School. Currently, I am in three photography clubs. As part of our meetings, we develop presentations on sub-categories of photography. I have presented on "How to shoot the moon," "How to shoot at blue hour," "What photo show jurors are looking for," and "How to choose a flash to purchase." Additionally, I have won second place and people's choice in area art/photo shows.
