                                                MORE ABOUT ME

 

My professional background is rooted within an opportunity to join one of the early Computer System Manufacturers.  System Engineering Laboratories, based in Florida USA, was supplying computer systems for government, commercial and military clients worldwide…in an environment that also included a highly successful Closed Loop Business Reporting System in the early days of Asset Management and MRP.

My career progressed with increased levels of responsibility within roles that included Project Planning, Master Scheduling and Supervision.  I was part of 5 Start-Up Teams during transitions from manual to computerized Resource Planning/Management Systems, in both development and training capacities.  These companies included international players I.T.T., Brunswick Corporation and McDonnell-Douglas.

As the Defense Industry shifted into developing trends, I pursued a career within an area of great personal interest:  Social Services.  I worked in a One Stop Career Center in 3 areas:  assisting walk-in clients with both benefits and career services, overseeing a sector of Services for Adults in Transition and Crisis and I also oversaw a program that assisted high school dropouts and young offenders continue their education and enter the job market.

Along with my primary career, I developed several sole proprietor businesses related to personal interest, including ‘Fish Notes’, a residential and commercial aquarium set-up and maintenance service and another in Landscape Design, Installation and Maintenance.  The lessons learned through small business ownership provide a level of understanding and knowledge that is only understood and learned to its fullest through that experience.  Customer Service and Quality Control prove to be a key to success and I put a lot of emphasis in those areas.

I am an avid writer of poetry and have been since childhood.  I am currently working on a semi-autobiographical book I hope to have published in the next 5 years.  I am also in the early stages of growing a business in which I am developing my line of handmade, nature themed Christmas/Hanukkah ornaments and had a very successful launch at the Leeds Castle 2009 Christmas Craft Show.

I relocated to the United Kingdom from my home on the Central East Coast of Florida, USA in 2002 and now live with my husband, Mark Shanley, who was born and raised in Kent, England.  Mark is the Hardware and Software Specialist for both clients and Spectrum ABC…a very talented resident Geek!
