I went to school at Salisbury University for Information Systems, worked in tech support during school and for 8/+ years after graduating. Now I'm excited to be a Product Specialist for Cadmium.

I’m a new mom to a 3 year old daughter named Adelaide (Addi for short) who loves animals, colors, and learning new things.
