CollapseDescription

I am seeking employment where I can make a positive contribution based on my experience and job skills. I offer a strong multifaceted IT background in which I have achieved much success in management, design, implementation and seamless operation. I am open to full time, remote, project or contract work. Over the past year, I have been privileged enough to be able to take a personal hiatus from my career to care for family and I am eager to focus fully again on my talent in IT and return to the workforce. My resume will show the depth of my background, and some of my extensive experience in developing and executing key strategies in a variety of IT operations. You will also find that I have an uncanny ability to creatively define and achieve financial and operational targets. I put fresh ideas to work and get the job done.
