Database Administrator

Pearson VUE
– Present (2 years)Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Area

As a Database Administrator for Pearson VUE, I spend time ensuring 24/7/365 availability and performance of the databases (OLTP and DW) that support VUE systems. I proactively monitor the database systems to ensure health and security. Also, I participate in capacity planning, identification and resolution of performance issues through a variation of query tuning, index/model tuning, and server configuration.

Primarily working with SQL Server I am responsible for applying patches, hot fixes, and life cycle planning of the main RDBMS at VUE. Oracle and Derby databases are also present in the VUE environment.

Other requirements I am responsible for are, teaching non DBA resources best practices for coding and performance tuning; as well as frequently working on development teams.

Sr. Database Administrator

Treasure Island Resort & Casino
(1 year 3 months)Red Wing, MN

As the Senior Database Administrator at Treasure Island Resort & Casino. My role was to manage a 24/7/365 environment including VLDBs from SQL 2000 to SQL 2012, and a SharePoint farm (MOSS 2007 upgraded to SP 2010 during my tenure).

The SQL Server environment contained OLTP and Reporting workloads, while SharePoint was used for both internal collaboration by all employees and to display dashboards referencing the data warehouse.

All servers were virtual so I maintained a solid understanding of VMware virtualization, and EMC SAN infrastructure. I was also responsible for designing new high availability solutions as well as disaster recovery techniques for the existing infrastructure.

I also maintained and supported numerous 3rd party applications including Kronos, Micros POS, and Agilysys PMS.
