1. What do you do and why?
I go to school for Computer Information Systems at Louisiana Tech University to learn about how technology and teamwork can better businesses, and to get my Bachelor’s Degree in March 2018 so I can start my career path! When I am not at school I enjoy stopping by my parents bakery, The Wooden Spoon, and helping where needed…or just eating the cookies. On the weekends, I beertend with my best friend at Flying Heart Brewing. I love working at Flying Heart because of the impact on Bossier’s culture the brewery has.
2. Why do you live/work in Bossier?
I live and work in Bossier because of how naturally opportunities have developed. For example, when I graduate I am lucky to get the opportunity to work at CSRA’s Bossier ITC, where innovative methodologies and thinking are used locally to build custom solutions for the Government and companies. No need to move when the tech companies are moving to Shreveport/Bossier!

7. What do you want to accomplish in the future?
I would like to be working alongside the Government to prevent and detect Cyber Crime or leveraging IT to provide business solutions and efficiency for local companies, while also supporting friends and family on their endeavors.
