Current Job/Career (feel free to elaborate on what you do):
I am currently a Software Developer-Supervisor on the Enterprise Data Team.
As a developer, I both develop and support applications assisting with the quality and flow of data across Federated.
As a supervisor, I serve on the management team where I assist in future planning for the Enterprise Data Team and help other developers be successful.
BA in both computer science and mathematics.
What inspired you to become a computer science major?
I started at SJU knowing I wanted to be a math major, but I also had an interest in computer science so tried out the intro course and stuck with it.
How do you use the computer science major in your current career?
While I don't develop as much as when I started, the problem-solving skills you learn while attaining your Computer Science degree help in more areas than just coding.
On the management side, we must problem solve constantly to stay efficient as a team. Choosing tasks to work on, choosing priorities, etc.
What advice do you have for students considering a major in computer science?
You'll always be working with others, so use this opportunity to learn how to become a great teammate!
In my 4 years, I've never worked solo on a project so do your best to learn how to work with all types of personalities.
