Catherine has worked in the IT industry for 18 years in both corporate settings and the small business market.  She currently owns Blue Sky IT Strategies providing computer consulting services to clients in Southwestern Ontario located in Canada.  Her valuable work history which includes help desk, network administrator, IT Manager, trainer and business owner/operator provides an excellent set of general IT skills.  Her strength lies within the Microsoft network realm dealing with both server and client communications.  Recently she has started to brush up on WordPress website development skills just for something fun to do.

I worked with Cath today. I just wanted to let you know, as I told her, that these services are greatly appreciated. I learned a few things from her today, and since I know I will be working with her again, I’m looking forward to learning more. – Happy Customer

Catherine and her husband live in the country just outside of London, Ontario where she enjoys spending time with family and friends.  They have two hyper dogs and a very busy toddler son, all three of which love to run around causing havoc.  Small town values are a big part of her life.  As she puts it, “I understand the importance of prioritizing time and like to ensure that clients are handled with care so they can get back to what matters most.  No one ever talks about spending more time at the office while on their death bed!” When Catherine isn’t working, she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie with a love for extreme sports.  Anything from skydiving, hang gliding, white water rafting and so on!  Her favourite slogan is “Carpe Diem – Seize the day.”
