I have a keen knack for assessing and understanding client’s needs and translating these needs to the appropriate processes and teams for resolution. I am passionate about using technology in achieving personal, team, and community health, fitness, and wellness goals. I seek to use my skills to help others – especially in bridging the gap between users and applications development teams to satisfy the needs of both and highlight the expertise of the developers and functionality of the SAAS. Over 15 years experience teaching and training all ages.
