Located in small-town Historic DeLand, FL. Serving Small Businesses Nationwide.
We are all nerds in our own right and fit together to form your Lead Nerd team.
I joined Lead Nerds in 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I have been building computers for friends and family since 2011 and have always loved taking things apart and figuring out how they work since I was a child.
I started getting interested in code in the late MySpace days when I would completely redesign my profile. This encouraged me to take Web Design classes in High School and eventually I redesigned our High School website where it was active from 2009-2012.
Working at Lead Nerds has not only given me the opportunity to help businesses build their digital presence but also refine the process and continuously try the make your website run faster and more effectively.
I also love that after many years I have been able to reignite my passion for building computers and offering advice on the best computer hardware for companies to run their business.
Lead Nerds is a continuation and extension of my Freelance career. After more than 10 years of working alone or as a subcontractor with other agencies I always felt like something was missing. There was a lack of connection and teamwork that was needed to grow client’s businesses.
I formed Lead Nerds to encourage tech education for our local community through “Doing Business Digitally” webinars and co-founded our now Annual “Computers for Kids” drive where we give used computers and laptops new life by upgrading them and fixing them to give to kids so that they can use them for their school work.
My personal dream is to one day form a before and after school program for k-12 that provides kids a free safe place to learn and be tutored in STEAM and encourage physical fitness.
Writing of any style on any platform is my passion. I have been doing so on a lucrative level since the ’80s. I excelled in Journalism by writing for the local newspaper and radio stations. To help small businesses I have written the sales and marketing copy to promote business for advertisements, telling a story about someone I was interviewing, and describing products and services in an appealing and relatable way to generate sales/revenue all the while keeping the reader’s/consumer’s attention.
For the past 31 years, I have been a licensed massage therapist and a state-certified teacher over the past 21 years. It has been a blessing and honor to be able to impact lives on a positive level by seeing the potential in someone and combining that with their interests and being there to help them navigate the obstacles they need to push through and give guidance
It is my goal to not only have you and your business look impressive but also to thrive economically.
