As a Web Engineer at UCAR, my primary role is the development of Drupal websites. I develop custom Drupal modules to meet the needs of our internal and external users. In 2011 I became Chair of UCAR's Web Advisory Group (WAG) and I dedicate a substantial portion of my time managing projects that affect all of UCAR. I manage web development work related to the organization's online technical strategy. Projects included transitioning departments to Drupal, creating UCAR wide web services using both in-house development and COTS software. I was also responsible for integrating Drupal and non-Drupal sites under a consistently branded and unified user experience. As a member of UCAR's Information Technology Council (ITC), I voice the web development needs and online strategy of the organization to this high level council. I also chair the UCAR Drupal Users Group (UDUG), which provides technical assistance and leadership to UCAR's Drupal developers. My involvement in these committees has helped achieve a widespread adoption of Drupal across the organization. As more labs within UCAR adopted Drupal, I became responsible for Drupal training. As part of UCAR's President's Office, I play an important role in UCAR's online communications strategy and branding efforts. I am responsible for reporting organization wide web metrics.

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.  I am currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Project Management from the University of Colorado, Boulder's Lockheed Martin Engineering Management Program, and PMP Certification.
