Our Organizational Genius
Shauna is the team’s virtual assistant.
With a background of over 30 years in nursing, she uses her patient triage skills to effectively manage all of our different projects and timelines. She loves administration and organization, and always has a willing smile ready to go (and hugs too, once those are allowed).
As a nurse, Shauna’s passion is in home care, where she does everything she can to help people stay in their own homes for as long as possible. As our VA, her passion is making things happen (and keeping the team in line, which can be a little like herding cats some days!).
No matter how many proverbial balls are in the air, she has her eye on them all & makes sure every project moves along its timeline.
IT & Tech Extraordinaire
David is a self-proclaimed Social Entrepreneur and “idea” person.
He’s been described as a “computer nerd with a personality”. His purpose in life is to use his experience and skills to solve technical problems in the pursuit of helping others to help themselves.
David loves to learn – with over 35 years experience in software development, he is able to pick up any technology, software tool/language/methodology/etc. quicker than most.
David’s experience in all phases and aspects of software development and cloud computing is vast and constantly evolving. His greatest strength is his ability to come up with ideas while pursuing a strong desire to solve problems with “outside the box” thinking. He is an advocate of “Rapid Prototyping” methods to get solutions into the hands of stakeholders quickly in order to get valuable feedback as early in the process as possible.
David’s motivation is put helping people over making money and believe strongly in practicing gratitude, paying it forward and “giving before you get” with honor and integrity.
The difference between geniuses and other people is not so much raw artistic talent but mindset, mental habits and work ethic.
Karolyn Masters ticks all three boxes. And that’s what makes her a creative Einstein.
What average people think of as “work”, Karolyn regards as play. So she approaches her work with an absolute joy and simply considers it fun.
After a consult with Karolyn, you know her curious mindset is locked in on your objectives. She drills down into your motivations so she can craft a visual tapestry that represents your hopes and dreams. (Really!)
While most people have to work at being “positive”, it is a mental habit so ingrained in Karolyn you know it’s fused into her DNA. She tackles difficult problems with such genuine zeal that you are on the edge of your seat to witness her creative dexterity.
Karolyn’s work ethic could earn her a top spot on Wall Street. Her creativity and insight work well beyond 9-to-5, so don’t be shocked if you receive one of her eureka emails at an odd hour.
If that wasn’t enough, Karolyn dedicates significant time to help other parents with children on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and support them to see the blessings within the struggle.
