Purdue Anniversary

Purdue University Logo
Today was my sixth year of employment with Purdue University.

During that time, I’ve gotten to know a great many people across the University and have expanded my knowledge far beyond what I had dreamt when I first joined Purdue.

On June 30, 2008, I began working for the Physics department as a Desktop Support Specialist.  I helped the faculty, staff, and students with their UNIX/Mac systems – fixing issues and improving their experience wherever I could.  I also helped out with the server-side environment when possible, as well as greatly enhancing the user-facing technical documentation.

On October 17, 2011, I began a new chapter in my time at Purdue as a Messaging Systems Administrator.  I joined a great team and quickly gained much technical knowledge along with a great deal more responsibility.  My new position was managing systems used by the entire University.  However, the biggest change was in being introduced to a world of greater collaboration across all departments and units of Purdue.  Ensuring superior communication during both good and unfortunate events has been a skill I’ve been able to hone the past three years.

I look forward to many more years to come at Purdue University and seeing my career and skills continue to advance!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Today marks the 29th wedding anniversary for my Mom and Dad.  Thankfully, it’s really easy to remember because I just need to add one year to my current age!  :-p

Here’s to many many many more anniversaries ahead!
