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.   

Q&A

Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: I exhausted most of my GI Bill entitlement for my previous life in law enforcement, and Centriq’s reputation and four-month career track made it the logical choice to prepare me for my next life.  I am married to a Centriq alumnus whose career success in web development is the result of his training.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: My favorite subject matter has been network systems.  I am a tactile learner, so the hands-on process of creating and troubleshooting an operational network is both challenging and effective.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: My hope is to draw upon my experience from my previous “lives” and to avail myself to employers who may see the value I bring to their organizations.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: People are a bit surprised to find that I love Zombie Apocalypse movies and novels.
