To whom it may concern:

I possess experience and education which provides a foundation for me to be an asset to your organization. I can provide your company with professional Information Technology skills that includes systems analysis installation, configuration and upgrading experience, as well as with application and systems integration and verification experience. Additionally, I have custom software development skills along with data base systems administration experience.

My qualifications include Bachelor of Science with a major in Geology and minor in Mathematics. I have application domain experience, an understanding of the software development life cycles and workflows and tasks related to application support. I have provided support for data management systems and applications including the planning and implementation of new solutions and upgrades.

I have been responsible for development and maintenance of systems used for data extraction, transformation and loading of information between differing systems as well as for creation and maintenance of the data base application software used for the loading of data to these systems and the support of how the data of each of these systems were connected and used. I built database structures, using operating systems commands, for the extraction, conversion and processing of seismic data, well log data and mapping data from their source data management systems and for the return and storage of that data to the respective data warehouses.

I am experienced in the computer operations field, and have worked as a Systems Analyst, Geoscientist, Computer Scientist, Program Developer, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) developer and Software Engineer. I used ESRI tools developed for the migration of data from relational data and application database schemas to an object oriented implementation. These tools provided a means to implement data transformations easily and consistently across various data sources. I was also responsible for performing system administrative tasks for the five ESRI UNIX servers used at the City of Oklahoma City.

I started my own business as an independent business evaluations expert and performed business evaluations using a program I created in a Microsoft Excel program that performs calculations and produces reports to establish a fair market value of a business.

I owned and managed a medical office practice management systems computer support and services company until its sale to WEBMD. The business specialized in providing complete operational support of the medical practice management systems used in physician’s offices. Responsibilities included support for the entire office staff, hardware installation, networking, software implementation, system security, data integrity and training. I had to plan, coordinate, and set schedules for the installation, implementation and maintenance of all management information systems for over forty separate physician sites. It was my responsibility to assess the current state of the physician’s office management and IT systems and provide solutions and recommend improvements by working with office managers to define upgrades or new implementation paths. I managed the physician office’s servers, keeping software up-to-date, setting configuration and security policies, and monitoring system status while assigning users access privileges to applications.

I possess excellent organizational and verbal/written communication skills, and am able to communicate and interact effectively with a broad spectrum of individuals, I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you and discuss my qualifications and your needs in detail. If my skills, abilities and experience do not fit the required parameters for this position please inform me of any other positions in which you think I could contribute.
