Hi, I’m Lindsey! I’m a newcomer to the IT scene and so excited to be here! I grew up in Kansas City, attended Park University in Parkville where I earned a Bachelors in English, and spent a few years working in the title insurance industry. I started to feel the itch to make a change to a field where there was a lot of room for growth and opportunities for continued learning that would challenge me throughout my career and found IT to be that field.
When I was a teenager, I spent my time reading books and writing short stories. I had an online journal that had an option to edit the HTML; this is when I was first introduced to web development. I taught myself neat tricks to change the appearance of my landing page. I didn’t know what web development was then, but I remember thinking whatever this was, they were lucky to have that kind of job. I joined the military right out of high school and served 8 years. I then worked various customer service jobs, my favorite being a leasing agent for apartments, because of the interactions with residents. I knew I wanted more out of my career, and so my search began at a local community college using my GI Bill. Tapping into what I really wanted out of life, I discovered I am lucky to be the person to edit what goes on behind web pages.

My name is Kayla McCullough. I grew up living the life of a military brat; moving and traveling every other year, not really settling in one place but relocating and adjusting as my father’s profession required. I am grateful that I have seen and lived in some amazing places but had always longed to settle down in one place to call home. 25 years ago we moved from San Francisco, Ca. to Kansas City and raised our children into adulthood and are proud of the people they are becoming. Nowadays, we occupy our time with 3 dachshunds that have just taken over our hearts.

I’m excited to start a career where I can continue to grow and reach my full potential.

My name is Michael Callis. I have worked in different warehouse jobs over the years. I have worked as a chemical processor, delivery worker and even simple jobs such as shipping and receiving and pulling orders. I enjoy working with people, helping others and working with my hands. I have always had an interest in seeing how things worked and dismantling them and trying to put them back together. That is what sparked my interest in IT.
To some, working from home sounds like the perfect way to keep up on projects and daily work activities. But with much of the workforce working from home under the current “shelter in place” restrictions, many projects are being pushed. This often leaves more time to take on additional tasks. If you or your team have been eager to learn a new skill or strengthen your existing skills, why not use this extra time to take an online, remote or virtual technical training class?
