Hello there, I’m Patti Smerk. I’ve recently started working with Simplex-IT, so I wanted to introduce myself. 

Where to begin? For the past 7+ years I’ve been with Booz Allen Hamilton, an IT consulting firm working mainly with large scale government clients on enterprise wide projects and programs. Prior to that I worked in consulting for ALG Computer Consulting and Training, working mainly with local small to mid-sized businesses. Before that, I taught software classes and technical bootcamps at ALG. Consulting just seemed like a natural progression from training, but I still really love when I get the chance to do some training every now and then.

One of the things I’m most passionate about when it comes to technology is Microsoft Project and Project Server/Project Online. I’m a Project Management Professional (PMP) and really like the benefits of using these tools to manage projects and programs. And don’t even get me started on dashboards ;-)  

My husband and I like to spend our spare time at our cabin in the middle of nowhere, enjoying the great outdoors. We recently got a 3 month old puppy, so if you have any training tips, please send them my way! 

I’m looking forward to what life brings at Simplex-IT and working with all of you!  Feel free to contact me here.
