Gradwebsite.com (current project)
I am creating very simple single page applications for non-technical college graduates to enhance their competitiveness and marketability upon graduation. These simple sites allow each graduate to shine a light upon the achievements that make them most proud. Each site is affordable and meant to convey the special personality and unique skills each graduate has to offer.
This project is for a non-profit whose mission is to help those who are forgotten. They focus on the homeless, the elderly, and children in El Salvador.

The VolunteerTrack app is a convenient way for users to manage their volunteer time, mileage and monetary contributions to charitable organizations. The application utilizes ASP.NET, EntityFramework, C#, Razor, and AngularJS to achieve objectives. If you click on the link below, you can see my code in github.
I studied Chemical Technology in college and received an A.A.S. degree in Chemical Technology. While working full-time, I finished my B.S.B.A. degree, majoring in Finance. Through the years following graduation, I worked in accounting, supervisory, and management roles that I thoroughly enjoyed, although never working directly in finance. These positions enabled me to hone my supervisory and management skills.
I decided to enroll in Nashville Software School to enlarge my skill set and add tech skills to my portfolio. While at NSS, I completed a front-end and a back-end capstone so that I could work full stack development under the supervision of senior developers when I graduated.
I was able to secure my first software engineer position and enjoyed it, but the long daily commute (3 hours) was incompatible with my family's needs. So I took a break to manage the remodel of our two homes. During this time, I have networked, attended conferences, (Agile, Security, etc.), as well as starting to work freelance.
Some of my favorite non-work activities are playing cards and board games, crafting (card creation, scrapbooking and quilting), walking, travel, and reading non-fiction. My passion is politics, so I read extensively about current events. I maintain a website as webmaster for a local charity, Angels of Heart. The mission is close to my heart.
