Software Development InternshipComposit Group
June 2014 - September 2015
My internship with Composit Group was my first position! During this period of time I wasn't a strong developer so many of my tasks were maintenance and refactoring of the existing codebase as well as infrastructure maintenance in a primarily ASP.NET dev environment. Wrote tests for API endpoints, models, and UI via Selenium.

Custom MailChimp Email TemplateForesight Design Initiative
For this small contracting project the client had a vision of the design for an email newsletter, and needed assistance in creating HTML/CSS that met this vision. I worked with the Foresight team to draft a design draft in Photoshop, then a back-and-forth process where I created styles and individual assets to compose the MailChimp template. The template was given some user-editable fields through MailChimp, and I created basic documentation on how to update individual template assets.

The client needed the website in a short timeframe: the entire website was drafted, reviewed, corrected, and published in under a week. Consisted of styling in line with event images, links to registration forms, and a schedule of seminars. Incorporated responsive design to ensure a smooth user experience across many different devices.

Technical Support SpecialistMerusCase
September 2017 - May 2018
My most recent position, which ended up being more of a generalist with a very wide gamut of responsibilities, from software development to video production. Primarily I was a member of the support team, where all incoming customer requests and inquiries are handled. I answered phones, replied to emails, and worked with engineers to communicate information back and forth. Also made significant contributions to the codebase, in the form of a whole new feature and a Windows infrastructure automation scriptset written mainly in PowerShell. Wrote documentation for API endpoints and worked with clients to assist in integration of the API. Very proud of my work with MerusCase!
