I was pretty much wigging out when my computer crashed. Sara not only fixed my computer, she helped me develop a better overall strategy to maintain files and storage as my needs grow. I came to her with a 5 year old macbook pro thinking it was about to die, and I left with a computer that basically runs better than a unit you could buy for $2K at the apple store. I can't thank her enough.

I would recommend this consultant to a friend or colleague!

My consultant was thorough, knowledgeable, patient, responsive and truly all I would ask for...a computer genius. She was able to bring back to life a computer that I thought had no hope, and get all of my computers (4) working perfectly. I am so grateful for her service and understanding of all things Apple. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

She fixed it

I have just tried to expand a simple home network into a small but techy business, and converted one Mac to a server with 10 devices attached. All this consumer-grade Linksys, Netgear, Apple and PC stuff was not talking to each other. They are now. I could have done this myself, if I had a week to poke and prod and test and try again. Sara fixed it. Fast.

We had significant Outlook and server issues. Sara came out and spent time at each computer in the office working through every single issue. On top of that, she spent extra time explaining the issues and their appropriate fixes. It's not every day that someone will sit down with and spend the time educating you on the ins and outs of the technical issues. Even after she left the office, Sara was still available, answering my unending questions through email and text...strongly recommend Sara to others for their computer issues. Thanks, Sara

I was having several annoying problems with my email, outlook, iPhone and iPad. Sara worked diligently to correct the issues. She went much further than any other consultant had before. She got all of my issues resolved and followed up to make sure all applications were working correctly together. In doing so, she discovered that my email service was not providing a secure connection. She researched a solution to the problem, and followed up with a remedy that resulted in perfect harmony between my iPhone, iPad, and desktop with Microsoft outlook. I am impressed with her skills, and mostly with her commitment to finding the right solution to my problems. I will definitely be calling her for any other issues I have with computers and programs. Thanks Sara!

Sara helped us when we upgraded our system and had a lot of problems. She made everything secure in our home network and our printer finally works wirelessly! Updated everything and gave us a tune-up. She was so nice and explained what she was doing every step of the way. She was so good we kept asking her to help with our iPhones and iPads Will call her again! She's the real deal!

I wanted to set up my iPhone, iPad and computer to work together, I am now able to use all of my devices together and she created a future plan so that I can stay current. Sara did a great job she was fast, explained everything and the cost was very reasonable. She also got back to me right away when I had additional questions. Excellent and she is local!

I have called on Sara to help me on a number of occasions. She arrived quickly and let me know what was wrong with the computers, fixed what was going on right on the spot and when I needed a new power supply was able to tell me how much it would cost to fix. She is very knowledgeable about Mac Systems and how to make everything work together.She is very reliable and friendly. I am so excited to have this service available here in Malibu!

She was so great. I'm not bad at this stuff, but needed help and hers was invaluable. Really consolidated a lot of tech for me. Trustworthy too. Highly recommend.
