My experience in IT began in 1988 when I was hired as a developer for McDonnell Douglas. Since then I have worked as an Oracle ERP and SAP Administration consultant for Price Waterhouse (1993 – 1997) and as a BI technical manager/consultant for Oracle (1997 – 2002) which prepared me to work as an independent consultant (2004-2014) before being hired by Lone Star College – System Office where I served as a St. Analyst in the Analytics & Institutional (AIR) department until 2019. I am a graduate of the second cohort of LSC -LEAD. The LSC-LEAD 2016-2017 cohort helped me to learn the uniqueness of Lone Star College’s administration and governance to align with my current studies in community college leadership (governance, administration, strategic planning). I recently earned my educational doctorate in Community College Leadership from the Roueche Graduate Center of the National American University on December 15, 2017. In 2020 s a member of the Texas A&M Analytics 2020 Cohort, I earned my second Master of Science which is in analytics. With this masters and my first masters from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in Computer Science and my bachelors from the University of Houston-Downtown in Applied Mathematics combined with my doctorate in education, I am working on my next career goal which is to offer actionable data insights through data science; the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and a subject matter (with academics as my subject matter).
