About Site Geek

My name is Patricia Dumond. I am the founding member and “Chief Geek” at Site Geeks LLC, located in Hinesville, Georgia. I started Site Geeks with one goal in mind: to help small businesses and non-profits get their message out on the web. I live in southeast Georgia. I retired in October 2013 after 34 years of service with the United States Army as both a soldier and a civilian. I have two sons, 5 cats (plus 4 who own my sister and 3 my son dropped off with us on his way to Vermont) and 2 dogs, Mab and Molly. My husband, Paul, passed away in June 2010 and my sister, Roberta (also a widow) came to live with me here in the boondocks. She keeps me company and makes sure I’m fed and have clean clothes (its kind of like having a wife). I’ve worked with computers since they were programmed via punched cards and took up entire rooms. I’ve programmed databases in COBOL. That’s how long I’ve been around computers. I’ve been developing and administering websites since 1999. I’m fluent in all the acronyms: HTML, CSS, PHP, etc… I was on the team that built the first website for Fort Stewart, Georgia, around 2002 — a cemetery database I programmed for the web is still on the site today. I spent my last 4 years as an Army civilian working in web security.
