Someone once said that if you love what you do, you can't really call it a job.  That's me.  I get to play with computers all day long and teach others how to play with them too!  I have been teaching Microsoft for over 28 years and whether it is a beginner Word class or something advanced such as Excel Analyzing Data or Microsoft Access, I never get bored and it never gets old.  My main goal is to teach people in administrative positions how to use Microsoft Office products to their fullest potential.  It is hard to "pick your way" through a program such as Excel or Access; that's where I come in.

Teaching Philosophy.  I think the best way to effectively teach software is to know the product well. That is why I consistently use every product on a regular basis. A hands-on, instructor-led training style is the most productive learning experience.  I  also believe that “repetition is the root of all learning. If you practice enough you will learn it.” My strengths?  Patience, understanding, and expert knowledge.  

Client Base.  My client base includes top companies such as, NCIS (Navel Criminal Investigative Service), the United States Department of Defense Forensic Science Center, Accenture, National Cash Register (NCR), Emory University, Gwinnett Medical Center, AT&T, Wells Fargo, The Home Depot, Pepsico, Cocoa Cola, Merial, Xpedx, Merrill Lynch, Locum Tenens, Delta Airlines and many more.  I have also taught countless amazing individuals who simply need skills for a new job or just want to advance their careers.  

Personal. I am the mother of a very gifted 34 year-old son who is a Financial Planner in the Buckhead area of Atlanta and the wife of a retired Management Consultant for a firm based in Atlanta. When I am not glued to my computer, I enjoy playing tennis, boating, fishing, roller skating, and playing with my two amazing Goldendoodles.  

I have also served as a member of Psi Chi (The National Honor Society in Psychology) and President and Founder of the UNF Psychology Club. I am drawn to and passionate about charitable organizations such as ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  I have also participated in Hands-on-Atlanta in an effort to make our city a better place for all.
