How long have you been working in tech for and what is your technical background?
I’ve been in the software space for more than 30 years. I’ve worked on some of the lowest levels of software in operating systems to higher levels in the software stack, delivering enterprise web applications.
I graduated from Iowa State University (ISU) with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering with an emphasis in software design and development. When I started at ISU, this was a relatively new program. (Fun fact – my two sons also graduated from ISU with the same degree, and it’s been interesting to see how the program has evolved and expanded.)
