The 2 common threads that have woven their way through my adult life is my passion for technology and my forensic ability to analyse data and find solutions to problems.
My forensic journey started with my initial careers in Medical, Veterinary and Textile laboratory work.
Discovering computers in 1986, combined with studies in accountancy led me in new directions which have fuelled my passion for technology. I have been fortunate to have had opportunities to set up accounting and administration systems for a construction company, a host of small businesses, a large property management company and owning my own Computer Training business where I specialised in Pastel Accounting and Payroll as well as training students on Microsoft Office products.
Over the last 10 years I have increased my technology skills to include design and graphics programmes and web design using Joomla and Wordpress and integrating Moodle on-line training. I continue to learn about php, CSS, Social Media and anything to do with websites and the internet. I belong to various Joomla Groups and use forums extensively to help me when something breaks. With websites, something always breaks ... when you don't want it to.
I have embraced Social Media and use it extensively especially loving the use of Smart Phones and Tablets which make life so much easier.
Having worked hard on developing my people skills through intensive coaching I have great patience with my clients as I guide them through the mysteries of technology and removing their fears.
Throw in a love for writing and expressing my opinions on anything and everything completes who I am.
With my business and technology experience, I am passionate about small businesses understanding why they want/need a website or to get involved in Social Media. I take my clients through a comprehensive business and marketing strategy session before they purchase a website or buy Social Media support services from me.
In short ... I will help you take your business digital.
Technology is an integral part of business – not an add-on. This is my mantra.
Braving Technology is my business where I help people take their business digital.
I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother and I live to learn and experience new challenges. Friends and clients describe me as a good listener, a patient teacher, intuitive and insightful with a naughty sense of humour.
My home is in the beautiful Valley of A Thousand Hills region of Kwa Zulu Natal in South Africa.
In my late forties I went backpacking in Europe for 4 months which set me on a completely different life path. A few years later Dave, my soulmate and I travelled South Africa living in a tent and ran workshops for those living with and alongside ADHD.
