R R Hird & Company

"I Do Windows"

Rozanne Hird is the founder and president of R R Hird & Company, an organization that has offered personalized, customized computer training, specializing in Windows, Word, ACT! and smartphone usage, since 1993. Rozanne uses her gifts as a life-long teacher to explain technical issues in simple terms, using plain-English explanations, concrete examples and connecting similes. She treats all her clients as if they were friends; she treats them as she would like to be treated herself when encountering a “foreign” subject. But her “day” job is only a small piece of the total Rozanne. She has a long history of giving to both her personal and professional communities. Her guiding philosophy has always been, “You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give.”

For over 18 years, Rozanne has gladly given up her weekends and evenings to serve—literally—the constituency and the staff of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Every Saturday and Sunday, Rozanne serves as manager for the Henry Unger Dining Room. She also has volunteered to help in the office and kitchen and during special events. In recognition of these and many other community contributions, Rozanne has received numerous awards, including: 

  • The Glennie Scott Volunteer Award from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in 2009;
  • Corporate Volunteerism Community Spirit Award from the Maricopa County Volunteer Center in 2006;
  • Directors of Volunteers in Agencies’ Certificate of Appreciation in 2002;
  • IMPACT for Enterprising Women Celebration of Success honoree in 2002;
  • The Rozanne Hird Award, named in her honor and presented by the Valley of the Sun Chapter of the University of Missouri Alumni Association in 2001, and;
  • The Light the Way Award from the Society of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters in 2000.

She is active in promoting the growth and development of her own and others’ businesses through her involvement with many organizations, including the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), Impact for Enterprising Women (NAFE), WISK (Women I Should Know), University of Missouri Alumni Association and Mensa.
