Experience out of the Classroom

This page is designed to give a glimpse into the work experience I have acquired over my collegiate career at the Mount. The folks at the university's career center could not have been more helpful; they encouraged me to pursue multiple opportunities and always had something for me when I inquired about a new job or internship. They work so hard for the students and I would not have this kind of real-world experience without them! Please feel free to read the descriptions below and click on the pictures to be taken to the websites of each organization.

Adams County

January 2015 - Present

As a database development intern for the IT department in Adams County, I employed modern database design techniques to create a highly functional relational database to serve as a land/use dictionary containing thousands of terms. I created the back end in Microsoft SQL Server and the front end in Microsoft Access. This allows for multiple, simultaneous access to the data while maintaining data security and integrity. The team at the county worked with me using an agile methodology and project management techniques which created a unique learning environment that gave me a glimpse of what working in the IT field is really like. My experiences with this internship opened my eyes to the world of database design and taught me invaluable lessons about this area which I now know is the area in which I want to work.

Victory Tutoring Center

September 2014 - Present

I have always had a passion for education; I love sharing the knowledge that I have so eagerly learned with other people! I was thrilled at the chance to teach/tutor in a formal setting, and I hope to continue teaching both formally and informally, no matter where my career path in IT leads me. At Victory, I tutored in Geometry, Algebra, Algebra II, remedial math, grammar, Spanish, Chemistry, paper writing and editing, SAT preparation, and various other subjects.

M&RR

July 2014 - December 2014

In my time at M&RR, I worked primarily as a computer programming intern. I learned HTML and CSS as well as best practices for editing and testing surveys written by the programming team. I thoroughly enjoy editing as a job, and it was rewarding to use my editing skills in a programming environment. I also got a taste for market research as a field of business and saw how it can be done most efficiently.

Adams Insurance Agency

January 2014 - May 2014

As a front desk intern, I was thrown into a fast-paced world of sales, insurance claims, payments, and policy issues. This internship taught me to adapt in a rapidly moving office that services thousands of customers. Multitasking was key; the phone rang so frequently that it became necessary to complete other tasks such as scanning, copying, or mailing while attending to the every need of a customer. Although I was exhausted after every shift, this internship proved that a good work ethic is a must and the ability to adapt to a high speed environment is one that many employers want to see.

St. John Regional Catholic School

August 2013 - May 2014

I worked for the school as a marketing and development intern. This job entailed organizing alumni information in a database, fundraising and event planning, digital marketing through the website and social media, and any other development job to bring in more funds for the school. I loved my time there and the people I worked with so much that I often go back and volunteer. My passion for education has me loving every second I spend helping to better St. John's and its wonderful students!
