Bio

I have been programming computers since 1st year of High School, back in 1982. I started tutoring other students while in High School and went on doing so through college. After I graduated, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer coaching other colleagues. As I went into mid-management, I embraced my role of mentoring my employees to become better professionals.

I have been programming computers since 1st year of High School, back in 1982. I started tutoring other students while in High School and went on doing so through college. After I graduated, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer coaching other colleagues. As I went into mid-management, I embraced my role of mentoring my employees to become better professionals. As I moved into a consulting role, my status as a subject expert, allowed me to help both junior and senior level employees enhance their skills.

I have volunteered as a robotics advisor and judge for high school STEM research project symposiums sponsored by the National Science Foundation. I have been invited to schools and universities to talk to students about the importance of education and leadership on their future and also I have been helping med school students with research projects in recent years. The last year and a half I have spent it as my first grader girl coach/homeschool teacher. It has been great to see how she comes to learn to read, learn math and learn how to solve problems. It is very rewarding to see the people I help, grow in their knowledge and achieve their goals.

My education as a computer engineer provided me with the skills to deal with software and hardware issues. My 30 years of experience have provided me with opportunities to work in different industries. My software and hardware development have been oriented toward business processes and workflows, especially automation and optimization. I have been able to apply my knowledge in general Computer Engineering (design methods, Software Development Life Cycles), and Computer Programming (algorithms, data structures Object Oriented Programming) to different business problems lately using the Asp.Net framework with C# for Web Development and Oracle PL/SQL programming on the back end complemented with MS SQL and MySQL. I have also been using Wordpress with PHP for websites. Of course HTML, CSS, Javascript Json, Webservices, XML, ETL, JQuery, Bootstrap for front-end dev

Public Speaking

I have been invited to speak at various universities. I have participated as a political operative public speaker and pre-candidate. I have participated as host/commentator on live radio shows. I have also participated in pre-recorded TV Shows as host/commentator.

Computer

ASP.NET,

ASP.NET

I have worked on multiple projects using ASP.Net as the base for development for the last 13 years. I have experience developing web applications in ASP.Net to perform manufacturing operations control, massive collections control, flood insurance transactions, credit card / ACH payments, advertising analysis, customer service operations support among others. I have worked directly on coding and leading teams working on these projects.
C,

C

Started programming in C language back in the 1980's. Programmed in both Unix environments as well as DOS/Windows environments. Have seen the language used for various types of processors ever since as well as used in Operating Systems.
C#,

C#

I have been working with C# for more than 13 years. I have used it on web applications, Windows services, MS-Office integrations, web services to connect Android and iOS applications, neural networks for image recognition and connection to back-end databases among other projects. It is a strong Object Oriented Programming Language with a rich library that now can be used beyond the Windows environment. I use the Linq library to get SQL-Like statements running on the C# environment.
Computer Engineering,

Computer Engineering

From my first experience as a Senior Technical Assistant at AT&T Bell Laboratories while still in college, through my first consulting jobs while still in college, I had the opportunity to use my skills learned at the university. I was recognized as an undergraduate student at my university when I was sent to represent the university, instead of a professor, as a speaker, presenting one of my computer engineering projects at a national conference of the University Unix Users Group held in San Francisco, California. After graduation 25 years ago, I have developed complete SDLC systems and procedures to structure software engineering teams. I also have participated in numerous system architecture design roles, which include both hardware design as well as software design.
Oracle

Oracle

Working with SQL statements since the mid-1990s, helped me become a subject expert on SQL queries optimization in Oracle PL/SQL. I was consulted by junior and senior developers on Oracle PL SQL constructs and algorithm optimization. I developed algorithms for previously impossible searches of tera-byte databases. I worked both with procedural PASCAL-Like algorithms and Object Oriented algorithms coupled with SQL queries and some Java libraries.
