Summary

I have extensive experience supporting faculty and staff with implementing technology and software for research, instruction, and administration.  My engaging, outgoing personality compels instructors and staff  to ask questions and seek additional help with their technology needs.  I have a strong work ethic and leadership skills with expert knowledge of new technologies that enable me and others to work smarter, not harder.
