Official Title: Development Support Technician
What do you do in your position on a daily basis: I make sure packets get processed and become available to clients. In STORIS, a packet is a new code set that brings additional features or updates to the application. They are added to the software in between major releases through Automatic Updates. Packets are like a blueprint. They are created, tested, and then run through a final approval process that mimics what clients would do in order to download and install these packets. I develop our internal packet system and Automatic Update system. Currently, I have the opportunity to develop and test a new .NET application to simplify the job process. The application was designed with a general idea in mind: to allow us access to data across multiple servers/accounts at the same time.
What do you like most about working at STORIS: The best thing about working at STORIS is being able to work on various projects that continually help me grow. When I first started, I was immediately given the opportunity to complete a redesign to several Dynamic Tab Settings (DTS) screens. I jumped right in during my first month working at STORIS and as the months passed, the projects became, not only more challenging but more exciting as well.
If you were not in this field, what would you be: If I wasn’t in the IT world, I would probably be in the health industry. I would do something like personal training or athletic development since I have a lot of interest in these fields.
Do you have any hobbies/hidden talents: A hidden hobby of mine is art. I’ve always had an artsy side, but I’ve never really been vocal about it. It’s been a while since I’ve had time to sit down and draw, but I think I’ll get back to it soon.
Favorite holiday: My favorite holiday would be Thanksgiving. Not only do you get to see your family, but you get to eat a lot of delicious food & dessert.
Favorite month of the year: My favorite month is October. Not only because my birthday is this month, but something about the seasons changing visually puts my heart and mind at ease.
Favorite food: My favorite type of food is Sushi. There are so many different flavors being combined into small bite-size portions. The best part is the variety.
What do you usually do when you aren’t working: When I’m not working, I usually hang out with my siblings. We’ve been fairly close since childhood. I have an older sister and two younger brothers.
Favorite place you’ve traveled to and why: Switzerland. The atmosphere there is just on a different level than anywhere else I’ve been to. It’s clear and refreshing. The people are extremely active – in fact, I saw more people walking and riding bikes than driving.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be & why: This may seem odd, but I feel as though being able to slow down time would probably be the coolest superpower. If you had more time to think and react, the possibilities could be endless.
Favorite color: My favorite color is white. It matches with everything.
Fun fact that many people may not know about you: Mean Girls is probably my favorite movie.
