Consulting

Since education has been a part of my life for my entire life, I can communicate with others very efficiently and effectively thus aiding them in their endeavor of building a successful web media footprint including a web site, LinkedIn, FaceBook, Etsy, Visual CV, newsletters, business documents, and emails that can be linked together through proper organization and development of business logo(s), bios, and USP (unique selling proposition). 

Editing images in Adobe Photoshop

I am proficient in editing images in order for them to be the correct dimension and size for web pages. I can also use Photoshop to create logos for business web site banners and business cards as well as FaceBook profile and cover images. 

Web design

As the webmaster for the school in which I worked for 32 years, I learned the rules, guidelines, tricks, and organization of websites/pages. I can visually analyze sites for functionality and advise about what the site needs as well as maintain sites on a daily/monthly basis.    I am creative and enjoy designing logos and banners for websites given the vision of small business owners.
