I have been working at Compassion International for 2 years, working with my team to serve Compassion's supporters, church partners, and the precious children. My passion is for protecting all children, pairing technical expertise and programming skills, have proven to help solve difficult challenges. Specifically, I served as the primary Developer for the PATCh (Protect All the Children) application. As a result, the Compassion team was selected to present during .conf2020. During the .conf2020 Keynote presentation, I was recognized for outstanding contributions and was one of three Innovation award finalists. Prior to working for Compassion, I worked for Windstream Communications as a developer and Splunk administrator. Previously I worked for Electronic Data Systems, as a technical trainer and course developer and as a systems/ network administrator.
