Computer Consultant and Teacher/Trainer

For the past 15 years, I have worked with students, teachers, educational consultants and administrators to help them to embed technology in their teaching practice. My main role is to demonstrate, recommend and provide resources for software and specialty hardware (such as SmartBOARD, Video Conferencing, Special Education Assistive Technology and much more. Over the past 6 years, after receiving my Bachelor of Education from York University, I have spent a great deal of time recommending web resources and assisting teachers to gain a deeper understanding of the benefits of digital learning to students of all ages. Seminars and training ranges from website design and maintenance to the use of OSAPAC licensed software to individuals, small groups and large groups.

For over 20 years, I worked in the graphic arts industry as a Print Sales representative (sheetfed and web offset) and as a Sales and Marketing Director in the Paper Distribution Industry. As a Marketing Director, I was responsible for created and implementing effective marketing programs for a variety of paper and graphic arts products that were distributed by Graphic Papers/Les Papiers Graphiques. I worked with ad agencies and designers to design advertising and marketing materials, arranged booths and demonstrations at Trade Shows, negotiated with suppliers from around the world, and coordinated cross-Canada meetings with sales staff from all of the branches. Through direct contact and sales staff I kept close connections with graphic designers, advertising agencies, printers and other customers (such as retail sales outlets), in order to increase sales and profits.

For 2+ years, I worked on studies, analysis, public participation and other programs for the eventual creation of a Regional Plan for Hamilton-Wentworth. My department's focus was Health, Recreation and Education as we planned for the expansion of the region over the next 25 years. During my summers breaks/co-op from UW, I worked on neighbourhood plans for the City of Hamilton with a team of senior planners/draftsmen and engineers.
