What is your role at Mainstay?
My role at Mainstay is to assist organizations with infrastructure insight for the business to ensure that their technology stack aligns with their business needs and accommodates future growth. I also contribute to our internal research team that helps determine which technologies we recommend to organizations and trains our staff on how to use these technologies.
What are your technology specialties?
CI currently hold certifications with most major technology vendors such as Microsoft, Cisco and VMWare. My primary focus is assisting organizations with adopting cloud platforms as a replacement to their traditional physical systems.

I received my MS in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance from Western Governors University. Having a degree focused in cybersecurity allows us to provide technology solution that will align with any compliance requirements that an organization may have.
What was your first memory of using computers?
My eyes were first opened to the world of computers when I was about 8 years old. I had a computer with a green monochrome display that I played basic games on. Ever since then, I have been fascinated by the evolution of computers and technology.
When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…
Chasing my two kids around the house and outside, which admittedly takes up the majority of my time!
What was the last great book you read?
“The Ride of My Life” by Robert Iger.
What are you most frequently heard listening to?
I mostly listen to audiobooks. I don’t have a lot time to read at home (I’m way too busy chasing my kids around!), so I will usually listen to an audiobook during my commute to work.
What is one thing you love about your career?
I love the teamwork that exists within the Mainstay. There is always someone to turn to when guidance or advice is needed.
