She has been Microsoft Certified since 2006 and became a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) in 2011. In 2012, Microsoft appointed her an MCT Regional Lead for the United States, and she is currently one of approximately 115 MCT Regional Leads worldwide mentoring other MCTs. In 2017, Microsoft honored her with the distinguished award as a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for the OneNote technology. She also became a Microsoft Innovative Educator and Microsoft OneDrive Expert (MODE) in 2017. When she’s not teaching in the virtual or onsite classroom, you can either find her at a technology conference helping others prep for their Microsoft certification exams or looking for turtles below the surface of the ocean.
Heather and Heather caught up virtually from Las Vegas NV and Manhattan NYC
Listen in as Heather talks with Heather about:
Heather’s company TeachUTech to help organizations with the adoption of Microsoft technology offering on-demand and in-person engagements and her start as an MVP working with educators to learn OneNote, her new love for Microsoft Teams and tips and tricks about own her own business and how to bring the information you need to you to keep up with the fast pace of technology training.
Her “accidental” start in technology after growing up in Florida and majoring in biology and marine biology in college, by answering a job board for an admin assistant for a local government in the IT department that led her to become the Microsoft Certified Trainer she is today.
Organizations that she belongs to that support women in tech and diversity tech in the Microsoft MVP community as well as her own local communities and a look into her book “Conversational Geeks - Conversational Office 365 Collaboration.”
