My start as a consultant to businesses on computer systems began in the mid-1980’s. As a long-time member of this profession, I have always worked to raise up the level of ethics and standards of the industry, including actively supporting the Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA) in the 80’s.
I have served on the NSITSP Formation Committee as its vice-chair since it’s inception Sept 2021. As it now transitions to a Governance Committee, I feel that my experience and background can be a positive force in the growth of the Society.

Relevant Experience

Beginning in the days when Novell was the predominate hardware/software solution for SMB networks, I bring almost 40 years of observing and participating in not only the workings but the transformation of our profession and how [our] clients interact with our product and services.  Our firm focuses on support for boutique law firms among other select industries.

In addition to my industry credentials, I have extensive experience serving on the boards of a variety of non-profit organizations across the spectrum of business, healthcare, environment, and education.  I am also formerly a practicing Parliamentarian and member of the American Institute of Parliamentarians.

I have been a member of the Formation/Governance Committee of the NSITSP since its inception, and currently serve as its vice-chair.
