Dreams do come true, or at least that’s how Opp’s Tonitta Sauls believes.

Sauls has dreamed for many years of owning her own information technology business, and she’s recently seen her dream come to fruition with her new business – Everything IT.

“There are still a lot of people who need help with their IT needs,” she said. “I plan to offer computer support such as installation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repairs.”

Additionally, she will offer web design and any professional printing such as invitations ranging from wedding to birthday as well as business cards.

Just call Sauls the “computer doctor,” and in true doctorly fashion, she said she’ll make house calls for those who aren’t able to bring their computers to her office.

“If it’s a situation where the computer cannot be taken apart, I’ll happily come over and help,” she said “Also, if customers stop by here and I’m not here, I’m most likely on a house call, and they can call my cell phone.”

Sauls said for the time being she will be the only employee of the company.

Sauls is no stranger to IT. She taught computer science at LBWCC for more than 17 years, she said.

“I taught it all,” she said. “This is something I wanted to do, even when I was teaching and offering these types of services.”

This is one of several projects Sauls has in the works; however, she said she’s not ready to announce her other plans.

Everything IT is located on East Covington Avenue in Opp, two doors down from Young’s Florist.

Office hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until. She may be reached at 488-5065.
