Professional Experience

Application Support Specialist @ Gordon College

September 2020 – Present

As an Application Support Specialist at Gordon College, my job consists mostly of monitoring, permissioning, and maintaining software that our campus uses, but my favorite projects are the ones that allow me to explore my skills in a more development-oriented context.

In particular, I have had the chance to work on multiple solo web development projects that have enhanced my practical skills as well as my ability to manage the project lifecycle.

Institutional Software Intern

September 2020 – Present

During my internship with Gordon College, I taught myself Windows PowerShell and built utilities for management of information/network systems. I also assisted faculty with tools to educate students online during COVID-19 campus closures.

Web Development Consultant @ Bennett Forkner Consulting

December 2020 – Present

While consulting in web development, I have the chance to work with small businesses on projects that will provide them with measurable improvement on their client relationships. I have worked with front-end developments as well as back-end API integrations, demonstrating the skills required to build a powerful web presence.
