I have been a network administrator, project manager, and technical instructor over the past 25 years. Many students and people I have consulted with have told me that I helped them because I am able to explain complex processes in simple terms that break it into manageable pieces they can understand. I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of New Hampshire's College for Lifelong Learning focusing on adult learning and I have a Master's degree from the University of Phoenix in Computer Information Systems.

Client Testimonials
"Working with Jean is so easy and a true pleasure.  She is extremely competent and knowledgable with a variety of Information Security topics and best of all she is able to explain concepts in simplified laymen's terms.  Thanks Jean!"
Jillian Nicole Pap

Jean is a wonderful instructor. I have taken classes from her personally and sent several of my employees for instruction. She is personable, knowledgeable and is very good at evaluating her class and their needs. She is able to adjust class material and instruction to suit the needs of a class rather than just following designated instruction material.  I have utilized Jean to create personalized, tailored classes at our location to meet time frames and topics that were not available at a training school. I also found that training on site limited to our specific needs was very effective. Jean will remain an integral part of our future training plans.
