IT-Database Administrator


Athena Families,

I am so grateful to be a part of this community and this team of amazing professionals. I am currently helping the front office in many aspects from IT support, administration, database maintenance, web design, registrar assistance, and general office support. I have a professional background in IT and over the years in that industry have spent a great deal of time in customer support.

My family is originally from just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada as well as parts of the Midwest. I have lived all over the country, parts of England and finally wound up in Corpus Christi, Texas. Once we finally settled somewhere I was able to develop hobbies and interests including music, surfing, the ocean and nature. In high school I started to hone in my love for music and really began to expand my knowledge of guitar.

From there I was accepted to Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas where I received a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Communications with a focus on cultural studies. While attending school there I met a group of friends that played music and this one day led to a band forming. Over the next 10 years we were able to start up a professional career recording our music, touring North America and opening up for acts like Weezer, Panic at the Disco, Blue October and many more. If I am not here at Athena I am at the studio or on the road with them chasing our collective dream.

I believe that chasing dreams is a huge part of life we can sometimes forget. It takes a lot of positive reinforcement from family, friends, role models you meet along the way as well as self-determination and love from a supportive community. I like to think that I bring that positive energy into the workplace and try to help as many people as I possibly can chase that dream, whatever it may be.

I look forward to meeting you all at some point over the year!
