Vice-President, Co-Founder 

“Committed to serving people and
improving the lives of others.”

Since 1988, I have worked in many environments where I recognized that the use of technology was the obvious path to increased efficiency. I worked hard to learn various pieces of software and eventually web based systems so that I could work smarter, rather than harder. This method of performing work made me seemingly indispensable in my positions held through the years.

From 2013-2021, I served as the registrar of a school that serves over 1500 students in grades K-12 in a large school district. In this job, I successfully migrated “paper” processes to online processes. I have taught many teachers, secretaries and district personnel how to use Google tools to streamline internal processes. Utilizing these tools, district and building staff are experiencing increased efficiency and more effective collaboration through this common platform.
