My experience

Security analyst with a proven ability to communicate and adapt effectively on teams of 5+ with 3 project workflows and volatile schedules to ensure deadlines are met with quality work. In a prior role as a Quality Assurance Analyst, I proactively trained coworkers to evaluate 4 different teams and prioritized my schedule and meetings with 2 stakeholders accordingly. As a life-long learner with a passion for cyber security, I attended a 1,000+ hour hands-on security bootcamp to enhance my understanding of SIEMs, network and cellular forensics, and vulnerability analysis. I am now eager to apply these passions in obtaining a challenging position on a collaborative security team focused on developing best practices for IT security.
