Over the past decade I’ve devoted most of my efforts to improving technical aptitude among charities and non-profits within Peterborough, Ontario. While coming from an English Literature background, I’ve always believed strongly in the democratization of technology, and the ability for people to take hold of technological tools to properly meet their goals. To that end, I’ve spent significant time doing both live and remote training in programs such as Microsoft Office, the Adobe suite of programs, Social Networking, WordPress, Internet Security and more. I’m also highly skilled in administering these aspects myself in my regular fee-for-service work with non-profits in the area.
I’m currently looking for a position where I can put these developed skills to good use, while also refining them to better serve you and your clients.
