- Work Experience
- I entered the IT field straight out of high school. I've been a network analyst, an operations manager, IT project manager, systems analyst, product development director and consultant. I've designed and delivered a corporate workflow solution, a company ticketing/issue tracking system, a VoIP predictive dialer with lead generation components and a custom, high-volume inbound marketing speech-enabled system that supported broadcast campaigns for national brands like QVC, Jiffy Lube and Procter & Gamble. I've managed in-house, remote and outsourced programming groups.

- Share Your Startup Story
- I had a late-in-life epiphany about writing -- I loved it. I had done a lot of technical and marketing writing in my job but a writing career never entered my mind. I'm an admitted latebloomer. I've started my own writing business and authored my first book of fiction. I focus on a few things at a time but obsess about them until I get them right. Now, ask me how long it took me to realize that ... that's a whole other conversation.
