I've had the opportunity to work in various industries while in college and after graduation. As a corporate advisor at DeVry, Inc I was able travel around the Midwest advising campuses, students, and professors on enrollment, classes, and technologies that the school had to offer.
After graduating with my MBA, I was a technology consultant for over 2 years. There I was involved in the engineering and business aspects of the company. I met with C-level personnel and discussed ROI, detailed aspects of a given piece of technology, and other general business related items. I had the chance to manage a team of engineers, and move into a more business development role where I used my communication skills and my talents as an engineer to work directly with IT managers and directors. I truly enjoyed the experience I was able to gather there. At least once a week I was learning and playing with a new technology.
After working with numerous amazing clients, I felt that I wanted to focus my talents and experience on one organization grow. I came to World Wide Fittings with that goal and have since helped them manage the entire technology infrastructure, IT budgeting and reporting, and user education. At World Wide I am able to be a self-driven person who sets goals based on the company's needs. I am able to forecast projects, estimate returns on those projects, and really push the people that work with me to excel. Within 3 years, I was able to cut costs by over 70%. I developed a structured IT department with reporting, budgeting, and growth in mind. After accomplishing the goals I had set out at World Wide Fittings, I felt it was time to re-immerse myself back into the technology field. I found, hired and trained my direct replacement thus properly transitioning the environment.
Currently, I am a Virtualization Solutions Architect at MTM Technologies. I am given the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technologies which I can then present to enterprise end-users.
