My Background

Raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, I have been a service-based entrepreneur for almost 18 years offering creative, technical, and administrative solutions to online business entrepreneurs and professional organizations. In my previous career, I was a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst, Digital Cartographer and GPS Specialist – yes, a mouthful!

My formal education includes the Graphic Arts Administration program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography and History from the University of Calgary and certification from Red Deer College’s Virtual Assistant Certificate Program.

After retiring from my formal career, I tweaked my skill set and created my own business. I first met Amy when she taught a class in the Hot Skills VA Training course I was taking and then later as contractors working with an online business support team. We have kept in contact over the the last 17+ years and I’m excited to join her team!

All in, I am highly skilled with 30+ years of experience in a number of areas including numerous software and hardware environments, the advanced functions of various desktop applications, creative design, high-end technologies and managing multiple projects, objectives and deadlines.
