Online Résumé

Summary

Quick update, hired on with Brock Services in January as an Admin Clerk for their Project Controls during the KBR construction project at the Koch plant in Enid. I wound up taking on Document Controls for a month and a half, then moving into Project Controls. As always, feeling happy to share more about it but they've had me so busy there's been no time to write, so this is just a short note.... The project is scheduled to be over by the end of June.

Designing websites and hand coding HTML on & off since 1995, three degrees later I launched SeeMe Digital Inc. for professional website design and development, digital graphics, and photo restoration in Enid, Oklahoma. I still have my raku studio but for now I am focusing on the digital work. My specialties in the digital arena are well-designed, speedy, and responsive custom websites with meticulous code, creating custom website graphics, and cropping and editing photographs for business and personal use, including old and damaged photo restoration.

Brief Background:

General Work:

Strong training and experience in caregiving, customer service, sales, and various office positions began in 1985 and continued over many years. Event center management included handling keys and schedules, verifying rooms were set up and ready for patrons, monitoring the facility and events, and calling security when necessary. Almost all positions required the ability to work independently as well as responsibility for the safety of lives and/or property. Spanish skills are extremely rusty but could be revived if useful.

The Web:

Designing websites and hand-coding HTML on and off since 1995, an eye for design as well as meticulous writing and coding are recognized skills. Specialties include website speed, coding elastically, and responsive development beyond the grid. A favorite project was the design and development of the custom responsive website for Woodring Wall of Honor and Veterans Park, Inc. (2013). Since then there has been further involvement with speed optimization and multiple image assets, offering better resources both for mobile as well as retina and higher definition displays.

Other:

The majority of time outside of work and formal schooling has been spent intensively learning, as well as participating with and facilitating special interest groups both online and in person. Classes and workshops were attended and given for art, science, and culture. Socially networking before that was an internet term, local and international groups have also been for study, service, events, and experience, with topics ranging broadly including civil liberties, community assistance, the environment, writing, alternative health, and personal development.

Groups and Associations:

Northwest Oklahoma: Volunteer for the annual Tony Trammell Memorial Scholarship Poker Run, blood donor, volunteered quite a bit at Leonardo's in the Pottery Lab, and helped build Adventure Quest
