ShortCut Shari

You might say I’m a cross between Dear Abby…and the Crabby Office Lady…I miss the Crabby Office Lady!  While my crabbiness varies depending on the day…my passion for helping you to work smarter and not harder only grows with the knowledge I gain every single day.  So STUMP me!  Ask me questions!  It’s my opportunity to learn, too.  Having said that, I might now just opened a can of worms, but I welcome the challenge.

They call me ShortCut Shari because I love keyboard shortcuts, but there are so many other ways to get from A to B more quickly in your daily job…so let’s get to work!
