It would be easier to tell you what I can’t do…
“I’ve never met software I couldn’t learn.”
“Trust me, I’m an engineer.”
- I graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2009 with a degree in civil engineering
- From 2010 to 2016, I worked as a bridge inspector and a materials engineer for the TN Department of Transportation.
- My primary focus was concrete, but as my superiors discovered my computer skills, I transitioned into
“Have you tried turning it off and back on again?”
- In 2016, I accepted an internship at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
- I worked with an amazing group doing software development for supercomputers (including the fastest in the world!).
- While it turned out I wasn’t very talented with coding, I learned that I love making things look amazing and more user friendly.
“Please, stop licking your desk.”
- When my internship ended in 2018, I traveled halfway around the world to teach English in South Korea.
- I learned more about grammar and the weirdness of children in my 1 year abroad than I ever cared to know.
- Instead of using my free time to binge Netflix, I started an epic Virtual Assistant business.
