Professional Experience – Highlighted Projects Include;

  • AARP: The 2012 AARP annual conference was held in New Orleans in September 2012.  Members of the Apple Consultants Network were hired to support AARP’s digital program, which featured the distribution of 1000 iPads, providing device and app training classes, and providing onsite help desk support to over 4000 AARP attendees.  I was asked to lead a small team of the ACN members in delivering the Apple Consultants Network Help Desk during the conference. The results exceeded expectations in so many ways, it is hard to encapsulate. Ultimately the true value was the experience of the conference attendees.
