Having moved to Austin after college at Tulane University, I earned a Master's
degree in Library and Information Science from UT Austin in 1995. I was
immediately swept up by Austin's burgeoning tech tide, and enjoyed working
as a project manager, web application developer and interface designer for
VersaCom, Inc., WebEdge, Inc., Apple Computer, and Interactive Ensemble,
Inc., and a few local "dot com" businesses. While currently on extended
leave from full-time employment to supervise our very busy twin daughters
and a toddler son, I have been busy with contract web development for local
companies and non-profit organizations. I have served as a board member
for Ashera Project , The
National Organization to Treat A-T, and Her Domain of Austin.
I have a programming background, and now enjoy freelance web design.
I specialize in custom web design & search engine optimization.

fiction courses for UT Informal Classes for the past four years now, and
has seen gratifying success amongst her "Wendy Alumni." She's designed and
had produced her former company's website: www.planview.com,
as well as writing, designing, and producing her own website, where samples
of her writing and teaching materials (and her graphics portfolio) can be
