About the Author
Undeterred when IBM policy forced her to leave her job as a punch card programmer when pregnant, Susan S. Elliott went on to form her globally successful company Systems Services Enterprises (SSE) which today produces a series of highly successful custom eLearning and mLearning solutions.
Across the Divide is not only an interesting account of the rapid evolution of computer technology and an informative and instructive guide to achieving success in the world of business, it is an inspiring story of a woman's dedication and passion to succeed, no matter what the obstacles. Susan's wins and perseverance are impressive and inspiring; the positive energy jumps off the page.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this biography of Susan Elliott and how she built her company. Susan started working with technology in the 60's and built her company up over time until she could transition it to her daughter, who is running the company today. As a woman entrepreneur myself, who started working with the Internet at its inception and has been steadily building my own business in the same St. Louis in which Mrs. Elliott has worked, I'm encouraged that I, too, can build a world class software services firm. Hopefully Savvy Technical Solultions will have the same kind of success that Mrs. Elliott's SSE has had over the years.
