A graduate degree in counseling led me down a surprising path of supervising a sheriff's office domestic violence intervention unit. Serving victims of domestic abuse not only honed my skills in counseling and mediation, but it also opened the doors for me to further impact my community as an educator, crisis interventionist, and hospital chaplain. These are the experiences that helped shape and refine my goals for living and working to serve my community.
Whether helping to design an award-winning electronic records management system or building custom computers at the kitchen table, technology has been an integral aspect of both my work and home life. As an early and quick adapter of new technologies, I'm often the one that friends and coworkers come to for guidance. An affinity for web-based technology keeps me engaged in website development, online education and social media.
With experiences ranging from managing small businesses to freelancing as a web content developer, I strive to provide superior services for employers and clients. In 2014, my own entrepreneurial spirit collided with a passion for books that was beginning to overwhelm my bookshelves and resulted in the launch of a successful online bookstore. I stand ready to put my creativity and experience to work on your next project.
Saltwater runs in my veins, but my heart longs for homestead living. I'm torn between land and sea. From beekeeping, gardening and backyard chickens to blue water sailing and boat restoration, my hobbies keep me in touch with this amazing world in which we live. Always ready for a new project or adventure, you may find me during my free time working in my shop or scouting out interesting sites with my family.
Here you'll find links to some of my achievements and samples of my work.
