About Me

I have a BA in Spanish from Ohio Northern University.  I graduated May 2010 with a 3.9 GPA.  Currently, I am working on a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration in Management Information Systems from East Carolina University.  I will graduate in May 2016.  I speak Spanish fluently and have worked as a medical translator.  I have classroom experience with Visual Basic and SQL and I frequently work with Excel and html coding professionally.

I am very goal-oriented.  I like to be challenged and prefer to stay busy.  I have a great experience working with business and teams to solve organizational problems and develop future goals.  I enjoy working on complex situations that require a great deal of research and planning to solve.  I thoroughly enjoy computer programming and seem to have a knack for system repair as well.  

Presently, I am employed with a family practice as an EHR coordinator or systems analyst.  My job is to ensure that the software they use is adapted to their needs, analyze their future goals and the requirements of the government and plan and train my practice to meet them, and aid the staff with any computer or data related issues.  In the future, I would enjoy designing or managing software for the healthcare industry but I am open to other possibilities as well.
