Work experience

Jun 2009Jun 2015


April 2007 diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma. I continued working as long as I could but the affects of the chemotherapy hindered my work and I was forced to go on disability. Battling cancer, I have had 12 surgeries, four years of chemotherapy along with a study drug. Entered the testing in phase 1 and completed through stage 3 and into FDA new drug approval in 2011. I am the only remaining survivor from phase 1 along with only a handful of people from phase 2 and 3. The new drug has shown promising results with increasing the survival rates for one to three years and five to ten year totals.

Teacher-Computer Programming

Rutherford County Schools

Taught C++ programming to grades 9-12. Worked with Power Point, Keyboarding, and Visual Basic. Introduced students to programming and worked on presentations where the students would create a real world business and have them incorporate lessons to allow them a step by step how to write program and present business plans. The students would present their projects to the class. They introduced their business plans in power point presentations. The students worked with this introductory based programming in C++. Overall goal is to have the students be able to write their resumes and have their goals for success put into a power point format. The students were able to apply the computer language into programs that would be able to create P/L statements, business plans, and presentations to clients(other students).
