Chosen Spot Design

In 2005 I graduated from Finger Lakes Community Colege with a dual degree in Information Technology and Business Administration and promptly started a Web Site business I named Chosen Spot Design. Hassle free web design is what I try my best to provide for my clients. There are so may folks running small businesses who need a helping hand getting a website started. Not everyone needs an Amazon or E-Bay kind of website and I try my best to help the non-technical and technical folks put together a "Business Card" website for people to find on the web.

Manic Schoolbus

The Manic School Bus

Just call me Miss Frazzled, cause just like all the other school bus drivers, I drive a manic school bus. Yes I do get up a 5am to drive bus, since April of 1990. The first day I walked in the door three of my own bus drivers where sitting in the lounge. And even after 25 years I'm still at it driving the kids of the kids I drove years ago. I guarantee it will be the worst job you'll ever love.
