Summary

Currently, I am a Consultant belonging to the Utah VSD (Virtual Services Delivery) team specializing in data center migrations. I have been integral in accurately tracking the application and server information in an Access Database called the Migration Access Database (MAD) on multiple projects. I am very proficient at using Excel and Access; some of my notable accomplishments include: 
• For one of my projects I implemented a solution utilizing SharePoint as a resource to submit changes to the MAD. This allowed for a single source for change control for all resources on the project. It also allowed for analysis of who submitted the changes as well as turnaround time.
• I have also re-engineered a Report Generator tool using Excel that can pull reports out of access, refresh all the data, save the report (with updated version information), and attach it to an email with the body populated from the tool itself.
• I have created a solution using Access to take in data from Excel, manipulated it for analysis, and return reports to fit the needs of the project.
