Hi, I'm Dr. C! I was born a military brat in the small coastal town of Corpus Christi, TX, but was raised in the rolling mountains of WV. As a country bumpkin I love to ride horses, go fake camping with electricity, and have an incredibly funny accent to match.
I first found my passion for problem solving in a high school C++ and HTML programming class. I would spend hours enticed by the need to debug my code so I could solve the next new problem. This soon became my strategy for attacking and completing many goals in life.
With my problem solving attitude & encouragement from family, teachers, and mentors I was able to beat the odds as a black, female from a low-income area and become successful in STEM
- I attained my doctorate in Computer Science at the age of 28
- I became the 1st Data Scientist hired in the IS department at the Fortune 500 company I work for
- My 1st ever publication was in a Taylor & Francis Journal
Now I'm ready to learn new concepts to keep growing my skillset and share what I know with others just in case it might help somebody grow too.
