Development Support/Executive Help Desk

Needles Case Management Software

November 2006March 2012 (5 years 5 months) Owings Mills, MD

I initially accepted this position to provide advanced technical assistance to attorneys and their IT consultants, but soon noticed countless lost opportunities for building client relationships as well as a dire need for quality control processes. I took the initiative to redefine my role, which came to encompass the duties of client liaison, quality control, and development support.

Hired as front-line software support, I quickly became an expert in Sylvan's accounting, training, and academic testing software.
