Title: Database Specialist
Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: Before joining the amazing team at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada I had a varied IT background that spans a decade-and-a-half: government, lottery, gaming, QA, and four years as the Information Manager at United Way of Greater Topeka. Working at UWGT is where I fell in love with nonprofits and database management. I moved to Las Vegas with a job as a part-time security guard at a night club and knew I’d find my opportunity in this city! Thanks for welcoming me, Las Vegas!
Education: I went to DeVry University for Game and Simulation Programming. After that I have taken to online courses and workshops to keep learning. The best part of being in a technological role is that we must always keep up with changing trends and new technology.
About me: I’m a Hufflepuff and a true geek at heart! I love arts and crafts, video games, reading, gymming, and exploring all the delicious restaurants Las Vegas has to offer. I’m a fan of soul-searching and life-changing road trips (like the one that lead me to Las Vegas) as well as lazy days with my cat, Amphitrite (Am-fee-try-tee).
My favorite thing about working at MAWSNV: Contributing to the granting of Wishes and seeing how those Wishes make changes that ripple out to affect a community as a whole.
My wish would be: I would wish for my own home-office/art studio!
