I am currently a Business Analyst with EDENS in Columbia, SC. After launching a new intranet and enterprise content management platform, I continue to support application enhancements and upgrades along with other business process improvement initiatives.  I relocated to South Carolina from Grand Rapids, MI where I pursued a career in ecommerce and software implementation with a regional coffee roasting company. Projects included accounting platform development and migration, retail point-of-sale system, and a ground-up ecommerce platform. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Computer Science programming certificate from Frostburg State University located in western Maryland, and recently earned a Certified Business Analyst Professional (CBAP) designation in 2019. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and attending sporting events.
