About Me

Hi, I'm Jane, a web and SharePoint developer.

I have a passion for user-centered solutions and specialize in listening to customer pain points and trying to create solutions that address them. Sometimes the simplest solution is the best one.

My education is in mechanical engineering and has resulted in me being a proactive problem-solver and seeking the most efficient solution for my clients. It also means I'm a bit of a math nerd.

Work Experience

Perkins Eastman

June 2019 - Current

On a day to day basis, I help create and maintain the customizations in SharePoint. I've helped design and develop specific add-ins, forms, page layouts, and display templates. Maintenance also includes fixing bugs and updating previously implemented customizations. I also maintain communication with various teams to ensure all their requirements are met for their teams' sites.

Gimmal

November 2014 - May 2019

As a Technical Consultant on the Professional Services team, my responsibilities varied from project to project. I helped develop custom code solutions for clients, primarily based in and around SharePoint technologies. We also collaborated with project manages and clients to understand needs and requirements, incorporate regular feedback, and created desired outcomes. I also assisted the support team in triage, research, and resolution of support tickets

I also participated in training aspects. I helped train other consultants within Gimmal in product installation and configuration. Additionally, I trained clients on how to install and configure any custom solutions that were implemented.

University of New Haven

June 2011 - May 2012

I conducted research on a space vehicle re-entering the atmosphere while working closely with my advisor, Dr. Maria-Isabel Carnasciali. I conducted Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis to determine drag and lift forces of various objects ejected from a space vehicle during re-entry; parameters were used to establish flight trajectory and determine risk of collision with space vehicle. We also analyzed materials using geometry generation, set up simulations using ANSYS/Fluent, and processed and post-processed results.

I also prepared and presented reports at research meetings with faculty, graduate researcher, and our industry sponsor.I presented our work at the Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society, Division of Fluid Dynamics in Baltimore, MD, November 2011. The project sponsor was Pioneer Aerospace.
