Position: Systems Programmer Senior, WVNET.
What I do: Manage development projects that provide online services to students, leads higher level business intelligence data reporting, and provides solutions to the overall needs of the academic community. Most of the time I function as a project manager working toward implementing various online services projects. I help support the college community by using technology to provide students and colleagues with a vast array of data needs so that they may make better decisions regarding their futures and the future of the institution.
What I love about my job: I love the fact that I can see my investment benefit the students we serve. As the mother of a young child I can see her future being built each day. The challenge of taking a project and working it through the maze of technical difficulties is exciting and intrinsically rewarding once it arrives at fruition.
Anything else: I am an artist by nature and found that I can express my creativity through programming code.
