Who Am I?
My career has been challenging and exciting my whole life, and as a result, joyful and fulfilling. I began as an assistant educator and became a Human Resources Assistant. This was a fruitful change for me as I learned new skills as a Human Resources Generalist. Classifying applicants for jobs, interviewing, and dealing face to face with employees on everyday business matters like transfers, insurance and benefits questions, or OSHA records and case management.
From these small beginnings I became a specialist in the field of HRIS Systems Managing a Ceridian and SAP based system on a global network for a Fortune 500 Company. My department was the management hub for 30+ Human Resources Departments across the globe. We trained all of these location in person and via distance learning teaching basic database management and advanced classes in report writing and Advanced Revelation programming and SQL. Teaching department heads to access the data contain in our system in new ways, making that data work for them in better, more useful applications.
Next, I moved to New York and became a Network Administrator and Liaison to Cornell University for a County Extension office. I was the technology manager for the entire 30 person office. I had final approval on all technology purchases. Teaching office staff and educators how to digitally capture previous and current paper-based records into a database I designed and built in Visual Basic and Microsoft Access. Allowing for previous data scattered over many departments to be collected centrally for more accurate record keeping and reporting. I was also elected as point person for implementing distance learning via audio visual over IP for the entire county. And as web developer and designer for the county web site.
My most recent job has been as business owner for a small technology company. We provide solutions for businesses and individuals. Whatever the needs may be we provided technical support, help, and guidance. Web development, design, and implementation. Whether for personal sites or business, artists portfolios, or e-commerce sites. A success for me that has broadened my horizons and skill set. Allowing me to follow childhood dreams of becoming a writer/creator of a successful comic book series.
