I have been working with computer technology of all sorts since 1995, when, at the age of 13, I began repairing and building my own computer systems. I have since dedicated many years to learning about the art of computer programming.
I began my college studies in Information Technology at Blackhawk Technical College, in southern Wisconsin, in 2009. In 2010, following instructor and staff recommendations, I was hired by Blackhawk Technical College to assist in tutoring, and mentoring, first and second year students, in the Information Technology Web/Analyst Programmer program.
I received a Special Recognition Award from Blackhawk Technical College in April 2011, for maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and consistently remaining on the President’s list, while helping to tutor and mentor other students at the college.
I received a promotion to the Student Services Department at Blackhawk Technical College in 2012, where I managed the computer helpdesk lab, and worked as an assistant instructor.
After graduating from Blackhawk Technical College, I decided to continue my studies at Upper Iowa University, where I am currently working on finishing my B.S. degree in Computer Science-Information Technology.
In summer of 2021, I will be starting my master’s degree in either computer science or English – Non-Fiction.
I’m also a lead Administrator for a mental illness support group, which has over 150,000 members worldwide.
