What I do
I have been a web developer since 1996, and have primarily focused my attention on PHP development since 2000. My career at UCAR started in 2002 as a Web Developer and Web Systems Administrator for the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) project. I moved to the Communications Department in April of 2008, and was given the responsibility of developing the UCAR website. My primary tasks consisted of modernizing the UCAR website and transitioning the editorial workflow to a content management system (CMS). As a member of the Web Advisory Group, we selected Drupal as the CMS to implement throughout the organization. I devised a strategy for porting content and functionality to Drupal through assessment of the legacy website's content, functionality, and editors' workflow. I developed and implemented a process management plan to transition the site and coordinated the planning, design, development, verification, and launch of the site. This also included a strategy for archiving the old site and maintaining persistent URLs.
I am a co-chair of the UCAR Drupal User Group (UDUG). I provide and help organize training for other UCAR/NCAR developers in their adoption of Drupal.
I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado with a double major in Spanish Literature and Economics. I received my Masters Degree from American University. I obtained certificates from the University of Colorado in UNIX Network Administration and Java Programming in 2003.
