In my professional life I've worked in both management and technical IT roles for small, medium and large organisations, across a wide array of industries. I've also run a couple of small businesses of my own.
I started working in IT in 1993, discovered the Internet shortly after and wrote my first HTML website in a text editor in 1995 for fun (yes, geeky!). I continued to dabble until one day in 2005 when I had an idea and needed something more powerful, and discovered Mambo and then Joomla!. I've been using Joomla! professionally since the early 1.0x days, and I still love experimenting with all the different things it can do.
These days my focus is on developing web solutions for small business owners, schools, kindergartens and others in my local community, using my experiences in management, technology and the Internet to help my clients achieve their goals. I've also been studying Internet Communications via OUA since 2010, which is allowing me to expand my skillset to include social media and small business marketing.
As well as running WebSolutionZ, I have 2 children, study part-time and run a hobby website, DesignerPhotoCards.com.au. I also have a rather nice husband who assists me with this juggling act. After all my years in the corporate world, I've found my happy place working with gadgetry AND people.
