Oct 2019 – Jan 2021 | Full Stack Web Developer
I maintained several Joomla! and WordPress sites. My biggest project was a new member portal for Attic Angel volunteers, which involved a complex migration from a homegrown communication, scheduling, and time logging app into several customized Joomla! components.
Oct 2019 – Jan 2021 | Fitness Coach
I called out directions and encouragement while groups of people did intense workouts. This was a good learning experience, but ultimately not my cup of tea, and I decided to go back to development.
Oct 2019 – Jan 2021 | Epic Application Consultant
I travelled every week from Madison, WI to Fort Worth, TX to advise Cook Children’s Hospital on their new installation of Epic.

Epic Systems Corporation
Aug 2008 – June 2016 | Technical Services Representative
I worked with hospital IT staff (mostly former nurses), to help them administer their Epic health record system. I would advise on best practices, debug and troubleshoot issues, manage upgrades, and generally ensure my customers’ success. I rarely met my clients in person, so clear written communication was a huge part of my work.
