After working 30 years in health care administration I made a radical career change in 2012. I said goodbye to the corporate life and became began a new career as small business owner, making apps and websites. I have largely taught myself to program with significant help from David Book, founder of Buzztouch, and Shane Smith, my adult son and programmer. I am forever indebted to both of them. I am also indebted to my husband, who supported my decision to give up a successful career to start over again in a new field.
I specialize in making responsive websites and apps that work on both iOS and Android. I am a natural project manager and have an uncanny drive to execute on deliverables. I have an M.B.A. and love business strategy.
I have a passion for education and studied secondary education and well as history and music for my undergrad. In 2014 I founded two Girl Develop It Chapters, one in Minneapolis and one in Phoenix. The Minneapolis Chapter now has over 1,000 members and the Phoenix chapter is not far behind.
I have a variety of hobbies. I hunt for Lake Superior Agates and have a rock tumbler running in my garage 24/7. I play several instruments, although the only instrument I play well enough to perform on publicly is bass guitar. My husband and I have two Pembroke Welsh Corgies who were both rescues. I love to travel and have been to London six times.
The name of my company is White Buffalo. For Lakota Indians, the birth of a white buffalo is a good omen. That is why the logo depicts a young white buffalo with a larger adult. By the way, the buffalo have names. The name of the little white buffalo is Hopi, the big buffalo is her big brother Tatonka.
