Since it was founding in 1987 as a
woman-owned small business, Fastrak Training Inc. has delivered over 350,000
contact hours of training to over 135 government and industry organizations in software
engineering, software process improvement based upon the SEI Capability
Maturity Model, project management, quality assurance, configuration
management, object-oriented methods, and the Ada programming language. Customized
facilitated workshops also help organizations perform self-assessments and
develop their own software policies, procedures and standards.
To those of you who know Fastrak Training
Inc., I would like to update you on what has transpired since we last worked
together. In April 1997, my husband John suffered a massive intracerebral
hemorrhage that left him paralyzed on his right side and with severe cognitive
disabilities. In May, I decided to close the Fastrak offices. All employees
were let go by September of 1997, and I moved the office into my home where I
continue to do some limited consulting. John's physical recovery was nothing
short of miraculous. His cognitive skills also made significant recovery and we
continued to work daily on those areas until his death in 2002 following a
final hemorrhage. I have written a book By His Side - Life and Love After
Stroke about our experiences since his stroke. It is a book about hope and
miracles and hard work. It is now available as a trade paperback. You may
purchase it at www.fastrak.com
Fastrak Training Inc. is no longer in the Ada or Object-Oriented business. However,
persons looking for training in either of those areas who contact me through
e-mail will be directed to one of our former instructors who is excellent.
Occasionally we still get requests for articles that were written by us.
Those articles are now available on this web site. To view the articles Click Here.
