Work Experience

July 2011 – November 2017

​Sr.​ ​System​ ​Engineer​ ​and​ ​Web​ ​DeveloperOTTR Inc

Starting​ ​in​ ​2011​ ​as​ ​a​ ​System​ ​Engineer,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​remotely  supporting​ ​up​ ​to​ ​70​ ​different​ ​Transplant​ ​Centers​ ​in​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States  and​ ​Canada.​ ​​ ​While​ ​each​ ​customer​ ​site​ ​needed​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​CMS​ ​standards  for​ ​reporting.​ ​​ ​Their​ ​vastly​ ​different​ ​workflows​ ​and​ ​processes​ ​required  the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​customized​ ​​Crystal​ ​Reports​​ ​and​ ​writing​ ​SQL​ ​lists​ ​to  assist​ ​each​ ​site​ ​in​ ​documentation.​ ​​ ​This​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​reducing​ ​preventable  patient​ ​mortality.​ ​​ ​I​ ​also​ ​became​ ​a​ ​subject​ ​matter​ ​expert​ ​on​ ​the​ ​data  conversion​ ​process.​ ​This​ ​included​ ​Oracle​ ​to​ ​SQL​ ​conversions​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as  flat​ ​file​ ​to​ ​SQL​ ​conversion

After​ ​being​ ​promoted​ ​to​ ​a​ ​Sr​ ​Engineer​ ​in​ ​2013​ ​,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to​ ​use​ ​my  expertise​ ​with​ ​T-​SQL​,​ ​​Java​ ​​and​ ​​VB.Net​​ ​to​ ​support​ ​patient​ ​interface​ ​and  outreach​ ​solutions.​ ​​ ​I​ ​used​ ​​HTML​,​CSS​,​ ​​jQuery​ ​​and​ ​​Javascript​ ​​to​ ​develop  an​ ​Online​ ​Referral​ ​application​ ​that​ ​allows​ ​Transplant​ ​Centers​ ​to​ ​increase  their​ ​outreach,​ ​effectively​ ​reducing​ ​the​ ​amount​ ​of​ ​time​ ​between​ ​Referral  and​ ​Transplant​ ​for​ ​both​ ​recipients​ ​and​ ​donors.​ ​​ ​Maintaining​ ​this  application​ ​requires​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​SSL​ ​certification​ ​processes

As​ ​a​ ​Web​ ​Developer​ ​at​ ​OTTR​ ​from​ ​2015-2016,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to​ ​assist​ ​in​ ​the  development​ ​of​ ​the​ ​company’s​ ​new​ ​​ASP.Net​​ ​application.​ ​This​ ​application  used​ ​the​ ​​MVC​ ​​5​ ​Framework​ ​and​ ​was​ ​developed​ ​using​ ​​C#​,​​ ​Ajax​​ ​and  jQuery​​ ​to​ ​work​ ​with​ ​both​ ​SQL​ ​Server​ ​or​ ​Oracle​ ​RDBMS

2016​ ​saw​ ​my​ ​return​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Sr​ ​System​ ​Engineer​ ​role​ ​to​ ​tackle​ ​OTTR’s  largest​ ​data​ ​conversion​ ​to​ ​date.​ ​​ ​I​ ​developed​ ​new​ ​functions​ ​and​ ​scripts​ ​to  further​ ​automate​ ​the​ ​process​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​make​ ​QAing​ ​large-scale​ ​data  conversions​ ​easier.

As​ ​an​ ​SBSA​ ​I​ ​was​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​supporting​ ​local​ ​business​ ​areas​ ​by  developing​ ​Lotus​ ​Notes​ ​Databases​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​VB.Net​ ​applications.  During​ ​my​ ​tenure​ ​at​ ​WPS,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to​ ​successfully​ ​automate​ ​several  processes​ ​which​ ​increased​ ​efficiency​ ​and​ ​accuracy.​ ​​ ​During​ ​a​ ​nationwide  Medicare​ ​contract​ ​negotiation​ ​I​ ​also​ ​served​ ​as​ ​a​ ​Project​ ​Lead  representing​ ​the​ ​business​ ​systems​ ​area.​ ​This​ ​required​ ​coordinating  resources​ ​and​ ​testing​ ​schedules.
