A Little About Myself

I was raised near Pittsburgh, PA until I was 16 years old and briefly lived in Lacey, WA, before moving to Sacramento after graduating high school. I met my husband, a Sacramento native, shortly after moving to Sacramento and just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary this year. We have two daughters, ages 14 and 10. I have worked for the state for 16 years and in Human Resources for 13 years.


My Computer Experience

My second job was at Hewlett-Packard initially as a tester in returns. My job was to run diagnostics, troubleshoot, and fix the desktops as needed, so they could be returned to stock. I also worked on the production line building desktops. I recently had a role that could be better managed with a database rather than manually tracking with several independent spreadsheets and paper index cards, so I decided to change my course of study to learn the skills that would allow me to create and maintain a such a database. What I discovered was that I really enjoyed the computer science classes and found a career path opening up that I had never even considered.


What I know about the Web and web publishing

I have had a couple computer science classes that had an assignment or two on HTML. We published a webpage learning how to change font, color, background, etc. Unfortunately, it has been a couple years but I am hopeful that it will come back to me.
