About me

I attended an intensive one year training program called Year Up which is a non profit. Through that program I completed coursework in: CSS, JavaScript, HTML, Linux, Apache, MySQL, Python, KanBan management , and IT support focusing on Mac. Joel and Josephine played a big part in my development here at Wikimedia Foundation.

I am joining the Wikimedia Foundation as a contractor employee of the Wikimedia Foundation. I will be continuing my work in Office IT while working with OIT on supporting staff with help desk request and projects that will benefit the OIT as well as the foundation.

In my free time I enjoy a variety of things from the outdoors taking hikes, to anything beauty/ fashion related, to most recently learning how to paint. I try to stay a well rounded person so at anytime I will pick up a new hobby.

My work

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as an IT Intern on July 27, 2015, converted into a contractor on January 30, 2016. I support WMF employees in SF as well as remote. I maintain OIT day to day maintenance.
