MS. JUSTINE SULLIVAN

Hello, St. Matthew’s! My name is Justine Sullivan, and I want to thank you for adding me to your team. I am a recent graduate from Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. Before attending college, I grew up in small town on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love living in a place where I can enjoy all four seasons, especially the summer time. I spend most of summer days enjoying the many wonderful beaches near by where I live. Moving to Phoenix will be a big change, but I am very excited to embrace every moment of this new adventure.

MR. PATRICK MCGOWAN

I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a BA in communications and business.  I went into “corporate America” for 25 years.  During that period computers were becoming very popular in business.  During those years I was involved in many computer startups and migrations to new systems in all forms of business.  Both hardware and software selection and/or development.  This included wholesale, retail and manufacturing industries.

I left the corporate life to form my own business consulting firm.  I here too helped many small businesses enter into the world of computers.

I started teaching at St. Matthew 7 years ago and I have enjoyed it ever since.  I love the “wow” look in the scholars eyes as I show them how a program works.
