Professional Experiences

  • President, Sep 2012 - Present

    impACT! Software

    impACT! Software began from my kitchen table in 2007 though I didn’t have a name for the company at that time. I would help friends and business owners with spreadsheets and programs to help make their businesses more efficient. As time went on and technology increased I continued to self-educate to be able to continue to offer my services to those who were in need. In mid-2012, I created my first web based application, “Building Blocks” and implemented it with my first customer, Ohio Hail Relief. Since then, I have partnered with the Macomb Incubator and have added several more companies to my application.
