Liz Beck

Liz first worked with computers while in college. At that time she was working on a mainframe with Unix and it was NOT fun. But it was challenging and she was bit by the bug. She graduated to a Timex Sinclair then to an Apple II+. After a stint with a Laser (an Apple II clone) Liz bought her first Mac. It was love at first sight. The Mac remains Liz's computer of choice although she has worked with Windows computers in various capacities.

In 1993 Liz opened Brickhouse Computer Services. She loved helping people with their Macs. After a couple years of doing just that she added teaching to the mix. At one point she had a small lab of four computers set up in her home office and gave classes to a variety of people including homeschoolers and the U.S. Coast Guard. She became a Certified Technical Trainer in 1995.

In 2004 Brickhouse Computer Services merged with Heritage MicroSystems to form Us & Computer Computers, LLC.
