(OTSI), Joan guides the translation of technical information and requirements into useful, relevant, and measurable resources for people who are seeking certification of their computer skills or who simply want to get things done efficiently.

Joan is the author or coauthor of more than three dozen books about Windows and Office (for Windows and for Mac) and three generations of Microsoft Office Specialist certification study guides. She enthusiastically shares her love of technology through her participation in the creation of books, learning materials, and certification exams, and greatly enjoys communicating the benefits of new technologies by delivering training and facilitating learning events.
