Lydia Patrick.

Following years of public sector work as a technologist and analyst, I decided it was high time to become an entrepreneur by pursuing a long-held interest in helping nonprofits and small businesses get online and to do it well. My unique skill set as a technologist, researcher, teacher and communicator led to creating custom websites that best fit the individual goals of each organization.
