CollapseDescription

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. I offer a strong multifaceted IT background in which I have achieved much success in management, design, implementation and seamless operation and am flexible to have the options of full time, part time or contract work. 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 and objectives with all my accountabilities, projects and tasks.
