Frontiero is a 1987 SC4 graduate. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Park College in Kansas City, Mo., in computer-based information systems and also management and business administration.
Computers offer unique rewards in the business world, she said.
“It’s like people who like to solve puzzles; you use the computers to solve business problems,” said Frontiero of Port Huron.
She has owned Robin Frontiero LLC, a software consulting firm, since 1995 and has helped more than 400 clients in the Blue Water Area and beyond to streamline their office productivity.
Improving efficiency is a personal joy for Frontiero.
“I have people working 40 hours a week by hand,” she said. “Now, it takes them one-and-a-half hours to do the work.”
Frontiero also is a teacher of business, management and administration at St. Clair County Technical Education Center. Teaching is something she’s wanted to do since the fifth grade, she said.
“I wanted to make a difference in someone else’s life,” she said. “I like to see the light bulb go on.”
Starting her education at SC4 made sense for her because she wasn’t settled on a certain career path at the time. And she isn’t done with her education.
