Certified Personal Photo OrganizerMy own personal photo organizing adventure led me start Megabyte Memories. I have been working part-time as an office administrator for several years, but always thinking of starting a business. I didn't figure out the right business to start until the fall of 2016. The timing is great now also, as my daughters are very independent.
I am really excited about being able to help people preserve their memories. I've heard so many stories from my friends about photos lost due to computer viruses or phone damage. If you watch the news, you'll hear many more stories of photos lost because of fire or other natural disasters. The objects people most want to save are their photos.
This type of business requires great computer skills and a passion for organization. I definitely have those attributes.
I look forward to helping you preserve, protect and share your cherished memories.

My Background and ExperienceMy varied background, education, and experience have given me may fabulous skills and tools to help me in this business:
- As a member of website development teams, I helped create and manage large product databases, including the Home Depot product database. There are many similarities between that type of work and organizing a digital photo collection.
- I earned my Diploma in Technical Communications from Humber College. I have written and edited technical instructions and training manuals. I will be offering photo management courses, as well as giving people guidance on how to maintain their photo collections. I know I'll be able to deliver clear instructions.
- For seventeen years I ran a successful business knitting sweaters. I sold them at large craft shows such as Toronto's 'One of a Kind' show. I am organized and disciplined. I am also very familiar with the administrative tasks involved in operating a small business. I closed that business in 2003, partly as a lifestyle choice as I was a mother to two young daughters.
