PROFILE

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 that work on all devices. 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. I am adjunct instructor at Saint Paul College in the Computer Science Department and have a website with tools and resources for students at WebDevStudents.com. I am also a coach at Coach.me.

I have a variety of hobbies. I play several instruments, although the only instrument I play well enough to perform on publicly is bass guitar. I hunt for Lake Superior Agates and I have a website called, IsThisAnAgate.com. My husband and I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. I love to travel and have been to London six times.

The name of my company is White Buffalo LLC. 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.
