Hello, and welcome to my site!
Let's get started exploring my world. I have
two beautiful children Christopher and Christian who help keep me focused and grounded. I really admire the late Dr. Maya Angelou . Her wisdom, grace, courage and inspiring words have enriched my life and encouraged me to reach beyond my comfort zone. This phenomenal woman was not only a poet, writer and dancer, she was a teacher who contributed so much to this world. Dr. Angelou's passion, strength and determination touched the lives of people she never even met. She was a bridge for so many, and she will be greatly missed but never forgotten. I consider myself a life long learner; I've completed my MBA and MA in HR Management and I have a Certificate in Paralegal Studies. I am currently working towards my PhD in Higher Education Administration.
For the past sixteen years, I've worked in the Information Technology
Services (ITS) department at the University of Missouri - St. Louis. In my role as Manager, Faculty Resource Center, I have the pleasure of supporting faculty, staff and students in their use of technology. My passion is to help faculty, staff and students find the technology solutions that will enhance collaboration in the classroom. I really enjoy supporting such a diverse group of individuals; I get to think outside the box and have fun in the process!
I can sum up the achievements in my life by citing a quote from the great renaissance woman:
"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it."
And finally I've realized throughout my journey in life that:
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
