business consulting

“DoctorGeek has helped me tremendously. I started out thinking I could do it myself with one of the 'build your own' sites! I kept loading information on it and after awhile I recognized it was not good. In fact, it was terrible. DoctorGeek helped me to focus, 'sift and winnow' the content and make it all work.

Within a week I had a number of new clients! I was amazed. Her computer knowledge coupled with her business sense made it seem easy. She is above all understandable, patient and willing to persevere until it is something you are content with. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to build a website.”

-Ann Bingham Newman, childfamilycounseling.com

“I have worked with Dr. Kullmann in the capacity of web designer associated with my consulting business, MB HealthWorks. Susan has a wealth of practical information to assist any newly formed business that desires breaking into the web information network. Susan is personable, professional and extremely creative in her web designs. She communicates verbally with the skill level necessary to match that of the audience, thus producing real-time instruction that benefits everyone in the room.”

“Susan is among the rare few academic technologists who effectively traverses the two domains of the scholarly and the technology support community. Her engagement with faculty was customer focused, thoughtful, reflective, and based on a fabulous breadth of understanding of the academic usefulness of the technology tools she had to offer. She is one of the true leaders in academic technology.
- Lev Gonick, OneCommunity, former Director, ITAC

“It is my pleasure to recommend Susan for any position dealing with the training, use, and management of instructional technology in higher education. At Cal Poly Pomona, Susan did a masterful job of creating a learning community of faculty involved in using instructional technology. She understood what faculty needed and in a collegial way made resources available. Susan was well respected by the faculty, staff, and students she worked with.”
-Phil Rosenkrantz | Professor, Industrial Management & Engineering

“Susan was an excellent manager. I remember her best for having the ability to get tasks done in a very timely and efficient manner. At the time she had about 10 employees under her but managed to maintain a close business relationship with all of us. I knew I could always count on Susan to be honest with me about the job I was doing which I think is something that a lot of managers lack in the industry today. I truly feel that Susan will be an asset to any company she works for sheerly based on her ability to delegate and get tasks done in a deadline driven environment.”

“Susan and I worked together in several contexts: as colleagues in various academic programs on campus, as colleagues in faculty service organizations, and as trainer/trainee in the division where she was a director. She designed and led several IT workshops in which I participated. In all of these contexts, she was easy to understand and work with, in fact, inspirational in her role with IIT. Susan is extremely smart and fluent with technology. She communicates well, enjoys other people, and provides direction without over-managing. She seems to have a clear vision of where she wants to go professionally, and I know she has deep-seated community values.”
-DD Wills, Anthropology, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

small training session with people working on a laptop

“Over the last few years, Susan Kullmann has provided a series of seminars and workshops for Scripps College faculty ranging from how to use Dreamweaver to design faculty websites to effective use of online learning management tools such as Sakai. I have attended several of her courses and have found them to be well thought-out and quite instructive. In her role as consultant to Scripps College she has also answered questions when faculty encounter difficulties using Sakai; her answers to me have been appropriate and helpful. I strongly recommend her for her knowledge and professionalism.”
-Winston Ou, Mathematics, Scripps College
