I am an experienced professional with a unique skill set developed during my career of working with Data Management, Business Intelligence reporting and implementation in both the automotive manufacturing logistics and healthcare software development industries. I have worked with data warehouses collecting and collating disparate data streams for comparison and analysis. I have a keen awareness of the fact that data alone will not provide guidance or create savings. Extracting information from data to guide business decision making has been the goal of all of the analyses I have performed and the reporting tools I have developed. I also have experience in mapping processes and developing documentation, including writing to ISO formatting requirements.

Some DBA experience; job scheduling, query tuning, error diagnosis and repair; indexes
Currently employed in the Health Care field creating applications and reporting to manage employee performance evaluations and business segment statistics.
Experience in the Automotive Logistics and Supply Chain Management field, beginning with front line operations and moving into creating automated systems to optimize material flows, including using data drawn from OEM systems such as CMMS.
Active learner looking for opportunities for flexibility and new learning environments.
