Technology has always been one of the consistent words that come to mind when people ask about me. The efficient development of and effective use of technology has always been my passion and is, ultimately, what led me to higher education. Starting back in high school and carrying a full-time system administration job through my undergrad education, I focused the majority of my first years of employment focusing on improving antiquated systems and technology in the travel field. This awarded me the opportunity to travel the world and gain exposure to global systems and the unique standards being developed from one country to the next. After about 15 years in the travel technology field, I branched out to start my own global software company where we served small and large corporations alike providing custom development, mobile implementations, and large-scale data analysis toolkits. During this time, I also began teaching and was really drawn to the excitement of working with educating the next generation of influencers.
