Conference Administration

Since 2008, I have served on the planning committee of 26 different educational conferences throughout the Northwest (Seattle, Spokane, western Canada), 16 of them serving as chair. In this role I have gained both conference administrative and under-the-hood database skills to tailor design conference tasks at all levels.

I'm a teacher with more than 30 years of experience in the world of educational tech, both administration and classroom. My language and methods for training are non-tech and make sense to my clients. I speak your language!
