I received my Bachelor Degree in Biology, with a minor in Spanish, from CSU in December '95. After graduating from CSU, I quickly realized that I was not going to find a satisfying career with that diploma. I then decided to pursue a Masters Degree in Computer Information Systems from Regis University with an emphasis in database technologies. Acquiring that degree is what allowed me to get where I am today.
Currently, I work in Boulder, CO for a pharmaceutical company, Pharmion Corporation. I am their Database Administrator, tasked with managing all of the database systems. This includes Oracle, SQL Server, and DB2 databases. Pharmion is a worldwide company, so most of our systems require 24x7 support.
I also stay busy working for Regis University, teaching database classes for the Graduate program. I've found teaching the material is a great way to reinforce and build on what I learned as a student, and what I do in my job day-to-day.
Before Pharmion, I worked in downtown Denver for a company called InfoNow Corporation, where I had similar responsibilities. I worked there for about 5 years. At InfoNow, I worked with a couple other DBA's to administer approximately 22 Oracle databases, from version 7.3 up through 9.2.
