Your family technology coach

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hello. I am a blogger.a content creator.a tech expert.a public speaker.a fixer.a movie quoter.a family technology coach.

I started my career in IT in 2003 when I joined the IT department at a home builder in Southern California. I soon moved on to an IT consulting firm, as an IT Manager. After I moved to Utah, I worked with a different IT consulting firm, and I stayed with them for over 8 years.

During my time as an IT manager, I also created a blog to help families understand technology better called FamilyTechZone.com.

I recently left the IT consulting world to focus more on helping families navigate our new digital world. Through FamilyTech.biz I am able to put the skills I have gained throughout my long career in the IT field and bring more families into the future! There is so much amazing technology out there, and I want to help coach your family to get the most out of it!

I love to writespeakteach about technology.

My passion is helping parents understand how new technology can change their life, make it easier, or even better! I have a unique background that can be valuable to families. As I connect your family to the digital age.

“Through the grape-vine I had heard of Sarah Kimmel. Words like, wizard – techie goddess – blog medium – genius always followed her name…I raised the white flag and reached out to her.
She was there. Swift, fast and precise. I knew I was in the right hands by the questions she was asking and the quick GoDaddy “change of domain” acknowledgements Gmail was providing. By 9pm the dust had settled and all was well. She rode off into the sunset.”
