Hi everyone. Iíve been participating for a few weeks and have already learned so much, I think Iíll introduce myself and stick around.
Iím Carol, wife and mom to 2 young kids. Iím originally from Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas, but moved to Utah 10 years ago. I got my first job in IT 24 years ago. I started out programming large IBM computers, moved into Business Analysis and design, spending quite a few years in consulting. Iíve spent the last 10 years as a project manager and business analyst working with developers to create web applications for a large healthcare company. I now work on a team doing design and quality assurance for web sites and web applications for the healthcare company. I work part-time to spend more time home with my kids.
Also, 8 years ago, my husband and I opened our own retail store. I taught myself html to build our website, with online shopping. Iíve since handled all the webmaster responsibilities, seo, email marketing, and shopping cart implementations myself.
And to wrap this up, in the last couple of years, Iíve created websites for friends and family. Iíve been trying to increase my skills to the level that I could in good conscience actually charge money and have a nice part-time, work from home income in this business.
And so here I am, trying to learn everything I can from all of you. This is an active forum, obviously with a lot of talented people. Iím looking forward to learning a lot, participating, and hopefully giving back to this community.
Thanks for reading!
