My Story

My Story

Hello, I believe with my experience at Daktronics and my previous employers that I have the ability to be a strong team player with my strategic business experience and leadership that I have brought to my positions. I have developed strong presentation and demonstration skills with showing our products and services. I have also learned to listen critically to our customer’s internal or external needs and wants, and document them so that I can present them to our engineering and project management teams to develop a solution for the customer. I am able to successfully communicate system requirements to the customer, along with provided a solution to work with their onsite systems for various applications such as parking, aviation, mass transit, and ITS (interstates and road ways). It’s up to me to work the funnel of opportunities and bring projects down through the funnel that will be profitable for Daktronics. With my previous experiences at Iowa State, I feel very fortunate. I got to participate as the Business Analyst lead for our senior design project with Metro Arts based out of Des Moines, IA, which you can find under the course work section on this page. I worked hand-in-hand with my team of business analysts, the project’s project manager, the End User, and our lead software engineer and his team. The web application that we developed for Metro Arts was a dynamically driven application that enables teachers of the Des Moines area to find classes offered by Metro Arts’ artists. Our application automatically allowed the public school teacher to enroll their class in various arts programs offered by Metro Arts. Prior to this application the enrollment process took a lot of time, manual labor, and valuable resources to complete. The project overall was very successful and did meet the needs of Metro Arts. I feel I have been successful in many of my past positions and I hope that my skills can be put to work for you.
