ANTHONY STEVENS II

 

BIO

I grew up on the north side of St. Louis.  After being a Team Leader for 3 years at General Motors, I witnessed how robots and technology assisted in making the most physically demanding jobs easier for my team, more efficient for the plant, and safer for consumers due to the accuracy of manufacturing.  This experience was impressive and validated that there is no better time than now to pursue IT interests.

Bio

In 2018, I graduated from Rockhurst University where I studied Physics of Medicine.  I determined that becoming a doctor wasn’t what I truly wanted and decided to pursue a career in technology.  I am looking forward to being able to turn my love of building and troubleshooting computers into a lifelong career.  I will be getting married in June and could not be any happier about the exciting path my life has taken.

I graduated from Missouri State University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Restaurant Administration. Since then I have been managing a full-service restaurant. I have always enjoyed the fast pace environment and love working with people. As I get older I am looking for a career that will challenge me as well as have opportunity for growth. My interest in technology has always been there, I just didn’t really know how to make a career out of it. After doing some research I found out about Centriq, and it seemed like the perfect fit.

Bio

I am a native Kansan, Army combat veteran, former federal civilian employee, wife and a mother of two adorable children.  My formal education and most of my federal employment experience are in law enforcement.  At my last federal job, I was the go-to person for IT-related issues in the absence of an onsite IT technician.  I enjoyed the challenge so much that I am pursuing a career overhaul through Centriq in Systems and Security Administration.

Richard Boggs

 

Bio

I knew I wanted to become a web developer in high school and pursued that dream. I graduated from University of Missouri-St. Louis with a Bachelor’s degree but unfortunately they didn’t have a developer program. My education continued in the workforce where I taught myself technical skills including, but not limited to, Visual Basic, front end development/design, C#, and Java. Centriq Training helped me take those skills and focus my skillset into my dream career.

Mike Moore

 

Bio

For the past 20+ years, I was a mainframe developer in the financial services industry.  After 9/11, I took military leave to serve in the Army and was deployed to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom. When my life as an infantryman ended, I returned to the life of a mainframe programmer.  After a while, I grew restless for a new challenge so I decided to grow my coding skill set by learning newer technologies. Now I’m working on that goal at Centriq and enjoying the experience.

Bio

I am a U.S. Army Veteran interested in continuing my career focus of Information Technology, Desktop support, Help Desk Technician, into my civilian life. I am eager to continue my education and better myself to excel in my field. I am currently a student at Centriq Training enrolled in the Systems and Security career track, where I will obtain CompTIA’s A+, Network+, Security+, and Microsoft Server Administration Fundamentals certifications. The reason why I chose IT is because I love the mind bobbling puzzles that comes with troubleshooting issues. More importantly the great feeling you have after solving the problem at hand, from those “My computer just won’t turn on”, all the way to full on outages.
