GREAT Personal Computer Repair Service!!
 
     Julie Kisic is the owner of PC Therapy, and REALLY knows how to take care of the home personal computer owner!  While some businesses prefer to offer services to commercial sources, Julie chooses to help educate, train, and assist the individual computer owners! 
     Julie has VERY reasonable rates, whether you bring your system to HER, or if you need HER to come to your home.  If time permits, she is also very good at explaining complicated issues to those who don't yet understand them. 
     I've provided three different ways that you can contact her, if you either need her services, or would just like to investigate what she offers.  The first link above (1) is the link to her business web site.  There, you can find out just about everything about her business and more.  She even posts "Tips" and "Tricks" free of charge on her site.  The second link (2) above is her direct email link, if you would prefer to write to her about her availability.  Finally, the third link (3) is the "Feedback" area of her business web site.  This provides you with another reliable way to electronically send her a message.
     Tell her that Mr. Orr sent you, and she'll take GREAT care of you and your computer(s)!
