Qualifications

Experienced

I am a social worker and have lived in the Monterey Area for the past decade. I am an Otter (CSUMB, CHHS, 2007), a Spartan (SJSU, MSW, 2011), and have worked in the field of human services since 2004.

Friendly

Relationships are very important to me and I am a pretty easy-going person. I enjoy learning and experiencing new things, listening to the radio, strengthening my skills, and practicing self-care.

Practical

Functionality and usefulness of your project is key, from learning how to use and customize your iPad to learning about the latest and greatest apps that are for sale and how be better productive for your practice.

Empowering

I tutoring and coach by meeting you where you at, helping you to feel comfortable, and assisting you to helping you learn in ways that you remember.

Aesthetically Minded

I practice my tutoring by meeting you where you at, helping you to feel comfortable, and assisting you to helping you learn so that you remember

Simplified

I’m a firm believer in no fluff. I work find ways to make a 10-step process into five or less.

Guiding Principles

Aesthetics

Image is everything.

Uncomplicated and Understandable

Technology can be very daunting, disempowering, an complicated. I’m good at making it manageable, useful, and understandable.

For your project, contemporary language makes your project relevant. For projects like web site management, content is worded in a contemporary way. With individual projects like academic consulting, my teaching style breaks down large concepts so that they are memorable.

Relevant, Timeless, and Professional Work

The shelf-life of a project should outlive the preparation that went into it. Careful work goes in to make sure that your project does not quickly become dated (or outdated).

A professional look and feel for your project will attract others and their desires to have it.

Empowering

Utilizing social work values and meeting you where you are, you will have better control over understanding technology. My job is to help you understand.

While my scope of practice in combining social work values and technology is well-grounded, I believe in being forthright to any of my limitations is a best practice.
