Cindy started as a computer systems consultant, helping hundreds of organizations computerize their accounting and operational systems, acting as advisor, project manager, technical resource, and trainer. She had the opportunity to work on many diverse projects including: developing bakery production and real estate management systems, and setting up job-costing, inventory tracking, payroll processing, and point of sale systems.
